History Channel Movie of Isaac's Storm

The Round Rock Public Library showed the TV documentary version of Isaac's Storm on Tuesday, January 19th, from 7:00 to 9:00 PM. Troy Kimmel, local TV meteorologist, gave a talk about weather events and safety.

This was a wonderful event, complete with refreshments! A full room of approximately 60 people attended. The movie is from the History Channel and is excellent. It uses actual photos. They are still photos, but they are intertwined with video simulations to create a spellbinding movie about Isaac's Storm.

You can see the movie on YouTube. I thought I saw a full-length video of it available on YouTube, but now all I see are sections. So, you might have to watch it in sections. It's good, though!

There is a review of the TV documentary at IMDB: Click Here
