The day of the derecho was scary at best. With down trees, no power and damage to the house, it was clear we were being challenged by Mother Nature.
When a few of us were discussing the day recently, the contribution by River Radio was mentioned. Members of the River Radio staff also had affects of the storm to their property, but the staff showed up and kept the sound waves going. The radio station gave up-to-date reports of weather and where people could get food, shelter, water and hope.
The entire region was affected by these unselfish individuals who put the community needs above themselves. I will always be thankful to the River Radio Station for their service during this emotional and stressful time.
