Tennessee Valley Weather Channel in Lawrenceburg is working with The Courier in Savannah to bring a live camera back to their downtown,
"This arrangement with Tennessee Valley Weather makes it possible for Courier readers to again see a great view of Main Street,” said Courier Editor Ron Schaming.
Ben Luna, vice-president of the Lawrenceburg-based Tennessee Valley Weather Channel website said, “Not only will the cam be used to show off the beauty of the city’s historic Main Street, but it also gives us the ability to see developing weather conditions in real-time.”
Tennessee Valley Weather Channel was founded in April 2020 as an effort of WLX Radio to create a local digital television source dedicated to covering the local area.
WLX Radio started a nonprofit organization and working within the area’s business community, money was raised to buy a new “dual polarimetric Doppler radar” which came online last May. The radar’s data transmits directly to the National Weather Service to aid in better warnings for the area, he said.
“We are dedicated to Hardin County citizens,” Luna said, “and will always be there to provide not only daily weather updates but wall-to-wall severe weather coverage during stormy days.
”The new camera can be viewed on The Courier’s homepage and Tennessee Valley Weather Channel can be viewed at www.tnvalleyweather.com.
