In honor of the opening day of the State Fair of Texas, our media partners at The Dallas Morning News, along with Shoot Low Sheriff, have reworked the "State Fair Romp," a tune about the annual fair set to "The Yellow Rose of Texas."

We received the song on the fair's opening day, and when NBC 5 Chief Meteorologist David Finfrock arrived for work in his hat and denim, ready for his State Fair of Texas live shots, we played the tune for him.

What happened next has to be seen to be believed...

Finfrock's State Fair Romp Stomp isn't his first foray into dancing. We learned that he had moves in 2009 when a photo that we all believed was photoshopped was sent in to isee@nbcdfw.com.

We later learned Finfrock indeed stepped up to perform a Russian folk dance during Holly Potter-Harvey's wedding reception.

We can't wait to see what dance our Weather Expert will do next. Stay tuned, we'll be sure to post about it here on NBC 5.

Note: He's averaging one every five years, although we get treated to his dancing abilities at our company holiday party every year.

<![CDATA[Plano Family Back Together After Hurricane Odile]]> Fri, 19 Sep 2014 06:31:51 -0500 http://media.nbcdfw.com/images/213*120/Odile+Reunion+091814.jpg

After days of being stranded in Baja California, Mexico, a Plano family was reunited at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport  Thursday.

Matt and Mitchell Hansen had traveled to La Paz in Mexico for a U18 USA Baseball tournament, only to be stuck on foreign soil when Hurricane Odile blew into town.

"When the hurricane happened, we saw the devastation immediately," said Matt Hansen, Mitchell's father. "But when all the cellphones and all the communications left, we couldn't even talk to people across town."

Their flights were canceled; their hotel sustained storm damage, including flooding and broken windows.

Some estimate that thousands of American tourists were left stranded by the storm.

The Hansens and fellow teammates made the trek to a Mexican military area, where some were able to secure a military transport plane to Tijuana, Mexico. From there, they were bused across the U.S.- Mexico border, eventually making their way to the airport in Los Angeles.

Teammate Trenton Clark was also on the flight home to DFW Airport, but without his parents.

He said they urged him to get the first available seat back to Texas.

"It was hard to leave my parents," Clark said.

"You just prayed for the best — that's what you did. I had faith we were going to get back and we would all get back together."

Meantime, the team had secured the gold medal at the COPABE 18U Pan American Championship on Sunday.

Friday night football fans braced for temperatures nearly 30 degrees colder Friday evening than last week's games in North Texas.

A cold front that arrived Friday brought brisk temperatures, whipping winds and light drizzle that didn’t let up.

Fans, like mother and daughter Rhonda and Marisa Hunter, of Plano, came prepared by dressing in scarves, long sleeves, hoodies and blankets.

"When I was little and coming to these games, it seemed to not be hot as late in the year as it is nowadays. This is more football weather to me,” said Rhonda Hunter.

They said at last week's game, they were dressed in capri pants and t-shirts.

"It's better to be cold, cause then you can huddle up and share team spirit," said Marisa Hunter.

Heavy storms on Saturday caused street flooding in North Texas. Dozens of people are homeless after lightning started an apartment fire in Fort Worth.

NBC 5 viewer Jayme Rodriguez took pictures of at least two cars surrounded by deep water along Hulen Street, just south of I-30 in Fort Worth.

An apartment in the 2300 block of Ridgmar Plaza in West Fort Worth displaced dozens of residents. Fire investigators believe a lightning strike started the fire.

Another house fire was reported near Highway 183 and Bryan Irvin near the Ridglea Country Club Estates.

ONCOR reported 9,000 customers without power across North Texas because of the storms.

The rain was so heavy it caused the National Weather Service to issue Flood Advisories for Tarrant, Kaufman and Fannin Counties on Saturday evening.

NBC 5 Meteorologist Remeisha Shade said the showers were part of a big weather pattern forming over North Texas. 

"A cold front pushing across DFW helped to kick off some scattered afternoon and evening storms dumping heavy rain over parts of DFW Saturday," said Shade.

The official rain totals from Saturday:

DFW Airport - Trace

Dallas Love Field - .07"

Fort Worth Meacham Airport - .80"

Texas Christian University - 1.06"

Waxahachie - .31"

Shade forecasted more possible rain on Sunday. "Low storm chances will stick around for Sunday although most of the day is expected to remain dry and a bit cooler."

Fire investigators said lightning possibly hit three to four homes and caused two of them to catch fire in Mansfield on Sunday morning.

“You wake up first thing in the morning and have a cup of coffee like any other day and three hours later you don't have a house,” said James Dopson, who lived in one of the homes that caught fire. 

“It [the fire] got pretty big, pretty fast and that was it,” said Dopson. 

It was a neighbor who alerted Dopson that his house was on fire on Sailboat Drive. He escaped with his 10-year-old daughter and cat. Fortunately, nobody was injured.

“I knew instantly that they needed help and that's what I was going to do,” said Savannah Morgan, who lives across the street from Dopson. 

Neighbors who've never met Dopson came to help, realizing the lightning that destroyed his home could have easily destroyed their own. 

“It shook the windows in the house,” said Morgan as she describes the lightning strike.  

“It sounded like a loud boom,” said another neighbor. “Something I’ve never heard before.”

Just a quarter of a mile away, another home on Poppy Drive went up in flames due to a lightning bolt earlier that morning. The roof was destroyed and a family of four was displaced, but uninjured

As crews were cleaning up the scene on Poppy Drive, they were immediately dispatched to Sailboat Drive for another fire. 

Most of Dopson's belongings inside his home on Sailboat Drive were destroyed, but he tried to salvage the very little that was left Sunday. 

“You have neighbors coming from the next block that you've never met bringing water, refreshments, food clothing and shoes,” said Dopson.

“You think to yourself, ‘There’s a lot of good people out there.”

Oncor is investigating what brought down power poles, lines and transformers around 4:30 p.m. Saturday afternoon in North Dallas, knocking out power to several shopping centers along Greenville Avenue near Lovers Lane and prompting a call for help. 

Lt. Ayman Ghousheh with the Dallas Fire-Rescue said the department received a call for people trapped in their cars beneath downed power lines, but by the time firefighters arrived everyone was out and safe. 

“We got a call on wires down, showed up we noticed the parking wires on top of cars, some people trying to get in some people trying to get out; it was real chaotic,” Ghousheh said. 

He said it’s unusual to see this type of damage.

“Not like this — usually we’ll get wires down, but not where a whole block and you have two poles down and both transformers are down,” said Ghousheh.

Ghousheh said he has no idea what brought the poles down, but suspected it was strong winds.

“It’s pretty dangerous. As soon as we got here we asked for additional companies to help us out just to get the scene safe,” Ghousheh said.

But, for Mark Rodkey, who was stranded without a car until Oncor could shut power off to the area — it was frightening.

“Just a big boom — we heard lightning or thunder was the big boom, or it may have been the transformer, but other people in the store saw the sparks for the transformer,” Rodkey said.

“What happened was the power went out — you heard the security alarm sensors go off and on — and then a couple seconds later all the lights went off and then they came back on and then they just shut off for good.”

Businesses were forced to shut their doors during dinner, one of the busiest time of the day. Many of the signs on the door asked customers to come back tomorrow.

“I just came to work and I just drove by and I see all these power lines down and all these businesses shut down and get to work and see we’re closed for the day,” said Camaron Martin.

As of Saturday at 9 p.m., Oncor reported 257 customers without power in Dallas County, down from a high of 16,942. Tarrant County reported 27 customers without electricity, down from 961. Denton County reported 20 customers without power, down from a high of 2,922. And Collin County had 25 customers in the dark, a decrease from 961.
