Inside the Storm: Hooker, OK

HOOKER, OK (CBS2/FOX28) - Life slowed to a crawl last night as our "Inside the Storm" team traveled through a pitch black countryside to Liberal, Kansas. Every mile seemed endless. Not even a stray light from a distant house helped mark out progress.

They finally pulled into a Super 8 Hotel in Liberal at 2:00 a.m. Fortunately the good folks there had left the light on. Even more surprising there were other travelers checking in for a prospect of a warm bed and hot breakfast.

They were back on the road by 10:00 a.m. but pulled over about an hour later for a team weather briefing. We're live-streaming these brainstorming sessions every morning at 11:00 a.m. if you want to meet the team and get the lowdown on the day's extreme weather prospects.

Hooker, Oklahoma was the first choice. The Hooker Chamber of Commerce threw the door open and our crew was delighted to meet Velma. She runs the show over there and offered up a space for the weather briefing.

Velma understands the power of Mother Nature's most violent storm and offers this advice. "Run!" she says. "We know what to do here," she added.

The crew is in Texas now and headed for the day's target for potential tornadoes.
