Toledo radio - Napoleon tornado coverage??

A place to go for those of you who wish to discuss happenings in OH, IN, IL, WI, and Ontario. OSU sucks, by the way.

Toledo radio - Napoleon tornado coverage??

Post by MWmetalhead » Wed Aug 24, 2016 7:06 pm

Any Toledo radio stations simulcasting TV coverage of the massive wedge tornado near Napoleon? Or is everyone asleep at the wheel?

we were on lockdown at work for 2.5 hours, K-100 had WTVG simulcasting. My work is in Wood county, scary stuff for sure.

I feel horrible for all of you in NW Ohio. We had our fun last Saturday (Kzoo/GR).

I was following tonight's events from work and had the WTVG stream going until 7pm... WHEN THEY DUMPED IT! I switched to 24 and stayed there until everything cleared at 9:30.

Through all of this, I was unaware of the Windsor touchdown.

I think 92.5 had WTOL's.

Great job by Jay and his colleagues at WTVG.They had alot better doppler and were following this storm more thorough than WTOL imo.Their doppler was hard to read and the graphic wasnt viewer friendly enough for me, I stayed with WTVG.

I know alot of us across the lake in Windsor and area were watching OTA.

I rate the coverage WTVG tops, BUT surprisingly, WNWO was 2nd, and WTOL's big pixelated clustercluck was impossible to follow; WTVG obviously had the most up to date scans by having their own radar not being delayed by NWS.

If this had happened after 7pm or on a weekend- there would be voicetracked crap on every radio station in town - I'm glad it was still before 6pm where the station manager could actually tell their minions to run the WTVG or WTOL audio feeds on their stations.
My ONLY beef is that the stations don't ever run their original network programming on their HD-2 in such a situation.

2-1/2 years ago on a Sunday night, the last time we had a tornado in/near Lucas County, there was NOTHING local on the radio.

Yeah... I remember the night of june 5th or 6th I think it was 2010, when Lake High School here in Wood county was destroyed. Nothing on WSPD. That was by far one of the scariest storms I have ever been through. WSPD did have coverage after the November one in 2013.

I watched a good bit of the WTVG coverage online. The stream would cut out for a few minutes at a time but then would rejoin live. They did an OK job...not great.

When they had the livestream from the storm chaser along US-6, they should've kept that video up continuously. GIGANTIC mistake to dump it, assuming the chaser was still streaming live. James Spann or Gary England would've never dumped that live video in a million years.

Cannot recall seeing a single measurement of gate-to-gate shear during WTVG's coverage, yet another shortcoming on their part.

I wish I would've checked out 24's coverage; I am embarrassed to admit that I completely forgot about them!

WTOL offered zero streaming video, from what I could tell. Looked hard for it on their web site and came up empty handed.

It was still there; the link gets buried outside of regular broadcast times. Might want to bookmark this in case it's needed: http://www.wtol.com/story/21001117/live-stream-story

Since they use Livestream to handle their streaming nowadays, you can also access it from here: http://livestream.com/WTOL/live
