Around 6:00 AM on 5/20/23, the main CAN bus cable for WCC was disconnected during a high flow event disabling all antennas.  Connection to the antennas was restored on 6/22/23, however, antenna 0A was damaged during the high flows and is only partially working with a limited read-range.  The Wilson creek antennas (01, 02) are working properly.
