Somebody at WTVJ edited together clips of our coverage from Sunday 8/23/1992 and 8/24/1992. This is that tape. You'll see anchor Tom Randalls, anchor Kelly Craig, reporter Ed O'Dell from the Bahamas, anchor/reporter Gerry Helfman, sports anchor (at the time) Tony Segreto, Jose Diaz Balart, reporter David Bloom, and National Hurricane Center Director Bob Sheets. Included is the time when I got a bit punchy talking about whoever invented the street-numbering system in Hialeah, and the decision to move to the "bunker" at about 3:00 am, which we did at about 3:30 am. There was a large construction crane across the street, which we weren't sure would stay up. Also, the roof on the old WTVJ building was suspect. It's eerie to see the radar in tact and the storm approaching, knowing that it would be destroyed at 4:35 am.
