BATAVIA, Ill. -- Among the group of WGN reporters who was on the ground in the hours, days and weeks that followed the deadly Fairdale tornado last April, Sean had covered the devastating Washington, Ill., twister east of Peoria only a year and a half earlier.

Lewis teams up at this year’s Fermilab program on Saturday, April 2, with first responder and veteran helicopter reporter Kris Habermehl, who was the member of a team of brave first-responders who were on the ground in the horrific and chaotic moments after the twister hit.

Lewis and Habermehl talk of the horrors first-responders and reporters on the scene of such a tragedy encounter upon arriving in a community which has been all but leveled by a tornado.
