Lake Charles Television Station Tower Crumbles During Hurricane Laura
We are beginning to see some photos out of Lake Charles and the damage done by a massive hurricane is what we expected.
Charlie Haldeman of ABC 13 in Houston got this photo of KPLC-TV's tower in Lake Charles. As you can see, the upper part of the transmission tower came tumbling down during Hurricane Laura.
Winds in Lake Charles exceeded 100 mph at the peak of the storm.
I did see that the staff at KPLC-TV in Lake Charles evacuated prior to Hurricane Laura making landfall, thus there may have been no injuries when the tower collapsed.
Our thoughts and prayers are will all in the Lake Charles area.
