Middle TN Tornadoes and DTV News

Now for the DTV news, if anyone has noticed that WTVF's VHF 5 signal (5.11-5.13) has been showing nothing but black screens, it's not just you. They have had a problem with a piece of equipment. The e-mail is as follows: We found and identified a problem with a piece of equipment that is only part of the VHF signal chain. You should have video again on 5.11. And as he has stated, they have now fixed that problem and are broadcasting back on their VHF signal. Until more news breaks, that's all for now.

Those of us in the Cookeville Micropolitan area really appreciate all the support from the region, state and nation during this time. The EF-4 that hit Putnam Co, which included a small piece of Cookeville City proper, killed 18 and hospitalized 88; some of which were sent from Cookeville to trauma center hospitals in Nashville and Chattanooga and some of them are still struggling for their lives today. We've been visited by many state officials including the governor, Representative Rose, both U.S. senators, and the president of the United States, which was needed and appreciated here in the Cookeville area. Tennessee Strong!
