Glade Spring Tornado
In the early hours of
April 28th, a devastating tornado tore through Washington
County, VA with catastrophic damage in several
locations along its path. One of the hardest hit areas of
the county was Glade Spring, with numerous homes and
destroyed at Exit 29. Washington County dispatchers went
into disaster mode and activated a formal incident
command once the sheriff's
command post had been setup. Many fire department
vehicles were caught between this storm and the following
storm that spawned the tornado.
That night 3 separate cells passed, producing more damage
with each pass. As result the responders were trapped
between downed trees and
their response was delayed. Mutual aid from many counties
and Bristol, VA was fast to act and respond.
When the storm hit, around 75 listeners of the Wide Area
feed lost connectivity; it was most likely due to them
loosing internet/cell or power.
Both feeds were live the duration of the event and will
contain valuable disaster training success and failure
Recorded Audio will be posted once processed, our
thoughts and prayers remain with the victims.

A short Diamond X50 is in place till a new X510 antenna
arrives the first week of May. The old (15 years+)
had some lightning damage from several strikes which lead
to water damage. Amazingly, the extensive grounding
protected the antenna and structures from further damage.
And it still worked!
We plan to refurbish and use for expeditions.
