Weather Radio
Why is it important to have a weather radio?

    Weather radios warn the public in advance about upcoming severe weather and any watches or warnings for your area. Weather radios can save your life! Tornadoes have touched down in every state except Alaska.

But I have a TV and there are tornado sirens in my area.

    Tornadoes can and does, half the time occurs while you are sleeping, you will not hear the tornado sirens because you are sleeping. If a tornado hits your house or neighborhood while you are sleeping, you have a huge chance of being killed! If you have a weather radio and there is a life threatening weather emergency, the weather radio sounds a very loud alarm, so you can wake up and head for safety.
