Tuesday night’s severe weather and high winds did some damage in Moultrie County.  The 150-foot tower at the Moultrie County Redi-Mix Plant in Sullivan, was blown down by high winds just past midnight.  

The tower not only had a two-way antenna for the concrete plant, but the transmitting antenna for WTIM’s 107-point-7 FM signal in Sullivan, as well as wireless internet equipment owned by Shawnee Communications. 
No one was injured.

As a result of the tower coming down, the WTIM 107-point-7 FM Sullivan signal is off the air.  WTIM officials are assessing where a temporary antenna can be mounted, while a permanent location to hang the antenna is found.
