Don’t worry about Florence, y'all: Tilting tower photo is bogus

The phony photo that's circulating on Facebook. The phony photo that's circulating on Facebook.
FLORENCE, KY (FOX19) -

You shouldn’t believe everything you see online.

Case in point: A fake photo of the Florence water tower that is circulating on Facebook this week. The top of the “Florence Y'all”-labeled tower appears to be tilting over while emergency crews surround the base of the structure. 

But don’t worry – the tower isn’t actually at-risk of tumbling onto the mall below.

“I saw it this morning and it’s fine,” Florence Police Sgt. Irwin told FOX19 NOW. He said a clerk at his local gas station showed him the fake photo Friday.

Several Facebook users reached out to FOX19 NOW and asked us to verify the photo.   

It’s not clear where the edited photo originated. 

The famous Florence Y'all Water Tower stands between the Florence mall and Interstate 71/75.
