Lightning Strike Knocks WSIL Off the Air

WSIL, an ABC-affiliate serving southern Illinois and southeastern Missouri, was knocked off the air early Tuesday morning by a lightning strike.

According to the station, equipment used to broadcast the on-air signal sustained major damage when a severe weather system rolled through the area on Tuesday.

Crews were able to restore programming by Tuesday afternoon but the station is still working to improve the technical quality of its signal.

After working without internet and phone service following the lightning strike, WSIL is producing its regular newscasts on schedule.
