Two broadcast towers in Lake Charles, La., have been damaged as a result of Hurricane Laura, which made landfall in the early hours of Aug. 27. There have been multiple reports of damages to the broadcast tower of KPLC, the area’s NBC affiliate, with pictures (above) showing portions of the tower having collapsed. Some reports are indicating there was damage to the STL (studio to transmitter link) and ENG, but that the main tower was OK. In addition, a representative from the Louisiana Association of Broadcasters confirmed that the LPTV station KSWL, a CBS affiliate, has reported that its tower fell on top of its building.
