Experience the aftermath of tornados through reporters using Periscope

Tornados struck several states Sunday evening. On Monday, reporters were streaming live as officials led them in to see the damage that was done.

I didn’t look for any storm chasers Sunday night on Periscope — due to the discomfort I discussed last week — but I aggressively followed aftermath reports throughout Monday, although new warnings were already being reported.

Television reporter Andrea Martinez was following reports of lost puppies in East Texas before the sun came up. In Oklahoma, photographer Brian Dickson showed us a tornado shelter that was partially torn from the earth.

Reporter Jill Callison filed several reports from South Dakota, including an interview with a public safety official. And ABC News Senior Meteorologist Rob Marciano took us on a helicopter tour of the destruction in Texas.

Also in Texas, NBC cameraman Dwaine Scott showed us the ruins of a school that was destroyed, photographer Rudy Montano showed us a truck crushed by a tree and Dallas news anchor Doug Dunbar fielded some questions while touring the devastation.

Here’s a brief video compilation from their Periscope reports:
