I don't know what possessed Al Roker to goof around and pretend to growl and bark like a dog when he and Matt Lauer from the Today Show were in Moore, OK yesterday, AS they were standing in the midst of the rubble left from the devastation of the tornado on Tuesday.
I get that Al jokes around a lot, and he was probably trying to lighten the situation, but that was neither the time nor the place to do it. Everyone makes mistakes...and I definitely Al should issue an apology for his antics.
Barbara Garcia was interviewed by CBS about her horrifying experience riding out the tornado yesterday in Moore, Oklahoma. Her house was obliterated, but fortunately Barbara made it out okay. Unfortunately, after she pulled herself out of the rubble, she called for her little dog, who didn't answer or come to her call.
As Barbara talks about coming back to the house to search for her dog, the reporter spots it trapped underneath debris...and it's okay. Skip ahead to 1:36 for the moment the dog is found.
