Ice Brings Down KPLO Tower

January 22, 2010, 3:07 PM

Ice Brings Down KPLO Tower
A KELOLAND television tower has been brought down by the icy weather conditions near Pierre.

An engineer reports that the KPLO tower in Reliance is down after its guy-wires snapped under the weight of ice buildup. The tower then crumpled before the top 300 feet tipped over, striking a power pole.

Crews are on scene attempting to repair the power line. However, the time it will take to repair the loss of the KPLO-TV signal has not been determined.

The signal loss only affects people who get their KPLO signal over the air; most customers receiving a cable or satellite signal will continue to receive the signal.

This article has been revised to reflect the following correction:
Customers receiving the signal by satellite will still get KPLO. In addition, an earlier version of this story incorrectly referenced the "guy-wires."
