I looked up an article on Wikipedia called List of Thunderbolt sirens (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Ackda ... olt_sirens) and under Columbus Ohio it said one standing and is operational. If that's true, where is it at? I am posting this because I don't always trust Wikipedia. Are there any more Thunderbolts in Franklin County or have they all been replaced? If not, where is the closest Thunderbolt to the county?

None are operational in Franklin County, although a few still are standing.

West Jefferson might be the closest T-Bolt still operating (I think).

Champaign County has a ton of them, but the system was deactivated last year. Otherwise, you may have to go to Dayton or southwest Ohio to find one still operating.

That list is really old, and quite inaccurate. I wouldn't rely on it for your info.

If you're talking about the one on the West Jefferson Police Department, unfortunately, I think that one is deactivated as well.

As far as I know, the 1000 in downtown Newark, Ohio might still be operational. If it is, that may be the closest working Thunderbolt to Franklin County.

I believe that's still active as I've passed it a few times this summer and would occasionally see it in a different position.

As some already know, I got the last standing one from the west side of Columbus, but I remember reading somewhere about one still standing downtown near the arena district or something. I don't know... :/

I remember you said in a comment on Calvin's (Mayer's) Easton Center 4004 video that you tried to record it last month and you didn't hear any of Newark's sirens test.

Is it still there as of this year? If it is, has it changed positions at all within the past year or so?
