Webster County -- Some south Georgians are unable to watch Public TV because a tornado ripped down a television tower.

Most of  the Georgia Public Television Tower in Webster County was blown away Thursday night around nine o'clock.

Part of it fell on the transmitter building beneath the tower.

Viewers who watch GPTV on cable aren't affected, but anyone who gets the signal from WACS Channel 25 by antenna won't be able to see that station for a while.
