Meteorologist�s tornado updates prompt death threats for interrupting Masters


A meteorologist in Atlanta said she received death threats from viewers for interrupting the Masters tournament that featured the historic and improbable win by Tiger Woods.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that CBS 46's Ella Dorsey took to Twitter to defend herself and the broadcast that only took up half the screen during the tournament.

“To everyone sending me death threats right now: you wouldn’t be saying a damn thing if a tornado was ravaging your home this afternoon. Lives are more important than 5 minutes of golf. I will continue to repeat that if and when we cut into programming to keep people safe.”


For all of you haters going after @Ella__Dorsey, here’s what happened in Troy, Alabama, this morning.

If this happened to you while The Masters were going on, you’d be changing your tune in a heartbeat.


Severe weather moved through north Georgia Sunday, leaving scattered damage across the area, Fox5Atlanta.com reported. A Tornado Watch that covered most of north Georgia ended at 2 p.m.

The paper quoted her news director who called some of the comments "insane."Video

Woods’ 13-under was enough to defeat Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffle, and Brooks Koepeka by one stroke.

In addition to Woods' fifth Masters championship and 15th major title (trailing only the great Jack Nicklaus in both categories), Sunday marked his 81st victory on the PGA Tour, one away from the career record held by Sam Snead. It was also the first time Tiger had won one of golf's four major championships when not entering the final round with at least a share of the lead.
