A borderline F3/F4 tornado had cut a path across WCFB's transmitter property, directly hitting the building and 1,500' tower, bringing it to the ground. The building and everything in it was a total loss and it was going to be a long recovery process.

Spring is a good time to verify all gates and fences at the transmitter site are in good order.
