Where could I find something close to real-time quality coverage of 5, 12, 25 during this tornado event on the internet? Plus WNEM's doppler was impressive!

I have some advanced weather tools and a ham radio, so I was on top of it but I still found the coverage helpful with this very fast moving storm.
Where could you find real-time quality coverage? Still looking for it.
You started this thread regarding too much real-time coverage of the tornadoes, now you imply that there wasn't any? You are a walking contradiction.

Stop looking:

Read, audioliar, READ! I said “quality” coverage.

While I agree with you on some of your points, you can avoid all the crap and log into this link: https://www.weather.gov

Also, you can download the Mobile App from www.noaa.com

Both have very accurate information, without all the hype and entertainment value. You can get valuable information in less than a minute.

I have used those links for years.

One of the things I noticed with regard to OTA coverage of storms, is that in GR, when a SVR goes out, most stations almost immediately go on air, until the warning has cancelled. Then they resume normal programming. Many stations for years did this as more of a courtesy. Now, it's become sort of 'the norm' in most areas.

Look at the Tornado Alley area for an example of broadcast coverage during a storm.

Either ride out the storm in the cellar with Auntie Em, Uncle Henry, Hunk, Zeke and Hickory, or take the Dorothy Gale route: complain about the TV coverage to Professor Marvel, rescue Toto from a local dog-napping gang of underpaid Meterologists led by Miss Gulch, and pray for a cell signal in your ramshackle prairie house, as your wi-fi hasn't worked since Uncle Henry knocked the Direct TV dish off the roof because RFD-TV was interrupted by some weather alert in the middle of U.S. Farm Report.

For those who choose the latter, knock yourselves out. I'll be in the cellar asking Hickory if he'd ever met Jed Clampett.

But what if we get sucked into a black hole and lose our atmosphere altogether?

WHAT THEN?!
