Sault, Michigan radio stations Yes FM and Country 105 are currently unavailable to listeners.

“We are sorry to report that we have experienced a major accident at our Yes FM/Country 105 transmitter site,” officials reported on the stations Facebook page around 3:30 p.m. Thursday.

“Although we're not sure what happened, we suspect extremely strong winds from the west have caused our tower to fall at the site.”

The Facebook page announcement states no one was injured during the accident. 

“Rest assured, we are doing all we can as quickly as possible to get our two stations back on the air. In the meantime, we are still streaming programming for Yes FM and Country 105 online. We will keep you posted as to the situation as we get more information and apologize for any inconvenience,” the Facebook announcement stated.
