I did some looking around near Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Station as I was curious about the location of the Hurricane in the newspaper and I found something interesting. The 2001 is located on W Lakeshore DR. & Henry J Buhrow's Pl.

I'd say it might have been the same pole, but the 2001 pole seems taller.
Cool find! Shame the Hurricanes aren't still here. With Darien gone, now there's only 1 working Hurricane in a real system...

And the Milwaukee Hurricane is on its way out as well, will probably come to the same fate as Darien. This is a super cool find and a really cool piece of history.

The Hurricane in Darien, Illinois got removed?









Sorry for getting a little bit off topic.

It was replaced by a refurbished T128 that is also painted black and is mounted on the Hurricane's old blower pipe.

Yes. The siren suffered from mechanical issues and was replaced by a T-128.
