In the face of inclement weather, be it a tornado, hurricane, tropical storm, etc., it is important to be fully prepared and ready, as well as up-to-date with breaking news and forecasts. That is why an all-hazards alert radio is a great idea for families to keep in their basements in the event of bad weather.
Furthermore, the National Weather Service projects constant weather updates on a series of stations throughout the country.
NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards (NWR) is a nationwide network of radio stations broadcasting continuous weather information directly from the nearest National Weather Service office. NWR broadcasts official Weather Service warnings, watches, forecasts and other hazard information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The radio itself can cost as low as $30-40 each (including delivery) and are described as essential in the event of adverse weather. This model is the size of a walkie-talkie. Not only portable and helpful, all Hazards Alert can be set to automatically activate and receive emergency statements.
