Bloom Mobile Damaged in Oklahoma Twisters

The Bloom Mobile, NBC’s mobile transmission vehicle which has been to Iraq and back, sustained damaged in last night’s series of tornados in Oklahoma. The truck was part of the Weather Channel’s Tornado Hunt 2013 entourage. As we told you last night, another truck was destroyed and the three people inside, including meteorologist Mike Bettes suffered minor injuries. Brad Reynolds, a Chicago-based freelance cameraman tweeted the image, left, of the damage to the rear of the Bloom Mobile which is named for the late NBC News anchor David Bloom who rode aboard a similar mobile unit during the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003 reporting live as the U.S. Army’s Third Infantry Division made its way to Baghdad.

NBC’s Anthony Quintano also Tweeted this before and after shot of the Bloom Mobile.
