NJ Earthquake - KEWR Tower Issues


Since this morning's 4.1 Earthquake, KEWR has had a groundstop. Tower was unsure if Ground was up, or offline. AAY1396 around 11:20 local could not raise the tower on approach and had to go around. Tower has sounded terrible and ground cars trying to raise. Sounds like operations may be resuming.

11:58ET heard a better sounding tower transmission come on, and a controller said, "I got it, Nate," as if handing over from a backup or mobile station to the main. Other transmitters were struggling to hear the tower for the last 40+ minutes, even though everyone else sounded clear.
