Storm Damage in Central Texas
Storms barreled through Central Texas early Sunday morning, and some of our radio stations in Temple were knocked off the air. As you can see with the pictures it will be a few days before several stations are at full capacity.
KLTD-FM’s primary satellite dish is toast. B 106’s Big Boy Show and several other locals radio shows will be affected.
KTEM-AM’s Texas State Network Satellite (grey) dish also became a victim of the storm. It may also be our saving grace. Our engineer Doug will be switching the hardware and using the less-damaged TSN dish for 101.7 The Ticket’s and B 106’s Big Boy Show programming.
Look closely. The horseshoe-shaped steel pole in the middle of the picture was straight yesterday (and through hundreds of other Central Texas storms).
This stop sign didn’t survive the winds. I’m thinking it’s got to be a tornado because no previous straight line winds have done this kind of damage.
This fence in the neighborhood in which the station is located is newer and that trampoline is under a year or two old. The trampoline looks to be out of commission.
This wood fence has seen its better days after Sunday morning’s storms.
