KHOU Severe Weather Legacy

Yes, that's Dan Rather in this video. He got his start at KHOU in Houston.

If you have great pictures, why squeeze them (for so long) into a little box?

Hi Anonymous, thanks for your comment... I made the decision to size down the video because while it was cool and old-school, the quality was also pretty bad. Blowing it up to HD resolution didn't look good at all. Same with the 2008 video (which unfortunately was archived in SD). We decided that keeping it small like that preserved the quality, and it also allowed us to use the timeline look in the background. Personally I also thought it was kind of nice to blow up into full HD video there on the back-end, you know, going for "wow" factor. Thanks again for your comment, I appreciate the feedback!
