A possible tornado ripped through BRIDGEPORT, CT on THURSDAY, and CUMULUS Talk WICC-A and AC WEBE/BRIDGEPORT were both affected by the severe weather.
According to a tweet by CONNECTICUT POST blogger JAMIE DELOMA, WICC was knocked off the air by the storm, while WEBE went on automation, was playing only music, and the stations' studios were evacuated.
BOB ANTHONY's NUTMEGS AND BOLTS blog said that the CUMULUS building was cleared after an air conditioning unit blew off the roof, and also reported that COX RADIO AC WEZN (STAR 99,9) had gone on backup power at its TRUMBULL transmitter site.
