A weather radio provides emergency alerts based on your location. Most weather radios provide an alarm and then the relevant NOAA weather and/or hazard announcement. You do not need to have the radio playing to get the alert.
You can know the exact weather conditions in your location, and what weather formations are only 30 minutes away and headed toward you.
If you have one of these radios, you won't be caught off guard in your sleep in the event a tornado hits. And you'll be alerted to any weather condition you want to be alerted to so you can be prepared when it hits.
Know if hail is coming, for example, and move your car to a shelter.
Hear the flashflood warning, and then delay that shopping trip you were going to take in the rain. Or if you don't hear the warning, then know it's probably OK to go out. No more guessing.
Know that high winds will arrive in half an hour, giving you time to roll up awnings and bring in lawn furniture.
A severe thunderstorm warning gives you time to check your flashlight batteries and be ready for when the power goes out. Or hurry up and take that shower now....
Stay safe, with these NOAA weather alert radios. Get automatic emergency broadcasts so you know what weather hazards are coming and what action to take to keep you and your family safe.
