I always go to TV 8 when the clouds get funny looking. and we count on you. Thank you so much. I am in Lake Odessa, and we are having heavy rain, blowing winds and thunder and lightning. Our dish network is out, but we still have electric. Thanks for always being there, even on your generator. TV is back and you are talking about Barry County. Thanks again. Kathy

Not too much though. You don't want the Riverwalk to flood.

whatever you think good or bad WOOD8 is the only station that will turn a thunderstorm into an all day program. Do we really need to know about someones bumper that fell off during the storm or the clouds and rain that were in a location a half an hour ago.....they like to hear themselves talk.
