An In-Depth Breakdown Of The Frantic Phone Calls Made To WFAA-TV This Afternoon.

Pretty scary afternoon today, you guys. Not gonna lie: We here at Central Track kind of freaked out for a second. Working next to large windows in inclement weather like this will do that to you.

Fortunately, though, aside from some loud thunderstorms and heavy rain, the storms mostly passed our offices by. As such, we were able to stay glued to local television news coverage of the tornadoes throughout the turmoil. And, like the rest of you, that means we were taking part in a beloved regional pastime, watching trusted local meteorologist Pete Delkus go to meteorological town on all things tornadic.

It also means we heard a number of frantic, on-air phone calls from area residents placed into Delkus and his fellow reporters. After watching about an hour or so of WFAA-TV's wall-to-wall, commercial-free coverage, we couldn't help but notice some eerie tendencies within these calls. So we busted out our pen and paper and started keeping track of the types of calls the station received. Here's what we found.
