The NOAA Weather Radio

A weather radio is an extremely valuable device especially for those of us who live in the mid-west.  The radio is relatively inexpensive and can be purchased at many local grocery stores.  The radio is easy to program and will function without the need for plug-in power should the power go out during a storm.  The alerting tone can be set to a very loud setting and when placed bedside, it will awaken most persons from a deep sleep.  When operational and used as intended, the weather radio is the most immediate and reliable means of notification of severe weather from the National Weather Service.  Some meteorologists appropriately refer to a weather radio as a "smoke detector for severe weather."  For additional information on the weather radio system in the United States, click on the link below.
