COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) — Direct TV and Dish network service is affected by the tornado which tore through Tupelo. Service for local stations is delivered to the satellite providers through a fiber link. That fiber was heavily damaged in the storm. Efforts are underway to route the signals in a different path to the hub but no time frame for when that will happen has been established. WCBI will stream all of its newscasts and any severe weather coverage until service is restored.
