NBC 5 in Dallas/Ft. Worth has started a new series on major weather events in North TX called Inside the Storm. It sounds like ir will eventually be on Peacock, but for now it is just on their website. Episode 1 is called Hail and High Water and it is about the May 5, 1995 Mayfest storm where softball sized hail injured 100s of people at Mayfest in Fort Worth and killed 20 people (18 flooding and 2 lightning) as it moved into Dallas causing over $2 Billion in damages.

That sounds pretty interesting.
Is there anywhere else(free ofcourse) to watch it? That site doesn't work for me.

It is now available on NBCs free Peacock streaming service. You have to create an account if you don't have one then go to search and type in "storm". You then have to switch from "results" to "clips" and scroll thru the list until you see "Inside the Storm".
