Weathering the Storm - Shelters and Weather radios

Severe weather can strike at any time, and having a weather radio to stay informed of big changes can save lives. This article sets the facts straight on cost and getting a weather radio that can program itself to your local NOAA info:

Severe Weather can strike in a moments notice, and we're entering the most unstable and dangerous season of the year. That's why we're bringing you a week of reports to help you get ready. "We understand this house and the next three were destroyed by a tornado that came through," said Greg Greenwalt.

Greenwalt is talking about the tornado that struck Jackson in May of 2003. That twister destroyed much of Greenwalt's Jackson neighborhood. He's lived there for two years and he hopes disaster doesn't strike twice. But, just in case it does, he wants to be ready. "Storms have been through here before," Greenwalt said.

"With everything going on in Jackson, Perry County, and now Alabama, people realize the value of a NOAA weather radio," said Cape Girardeau Emergency Management Director, Dave Hitt.

He says a quality weather radio costs between $25 and $60. Hitt recommends a radio that can be programmed for your specific county and those that surround you.
