On April 1st, 2022, Kammerer was reporting live on a possible tornado when he briefly paused to call his son and warn him of the possible tornado. While reporting to his viewers showing that the Chevy Chase area of Maryland was under a tornado warning, he said;
“I’m tracking this so closely now. This is gonna go right over my house. So, very close to my house,” He was terrified for his children and right there he called his son Kent.
You there buddy?” he says. “Alright, hey man, I want you to get down in the basement. We got a tornado warning.” Kammer instructs his son to grab his sister and wait in the basement.
“Get downstairs as soon as you can, OK? Yeah, get down there right now. Get in that bath — in the, get in that bedroom down there. Just wait for 10 or 15 minutes, OK? Do it right now. OK, thanks, buddy.” he says before hanging up and resuming his broadcast.
He later explained to his viewers; “Alright. So, that was just — I’ve got to warn my kids because I know what my kids are doing right now, and they are probably online gaming, and they are not seeing this.”
At this time, he felt he needed to make that call since his children were home alone and his wife was not around. He later updated that his children arere safe as no one was injured as a result of that tornado.
