It’s not just Casey Anthony who can scramble Orlando TV programming. Mother Nature also has some clout.
Late afternoon tornado warnings on Saturday disrupted Orlando’s already mixed-up TV programming. Sports fans hoping to watch the U.S. Open golf tournament on WESH-2 and the Yankees-Cubs baseball game of the week on Fox 35 had to settle for split-screen coverage.

The last batch even managed to knock off WFTV-Channel 9’s weekly Casey recap special. It will be rescheduled.
Despite four separate tornado warnings over two hours, there were no confirmed twisters. A look below at Orlando TV on Saturday afternoon:
