What can I do to be notified of an impending tornado inside my home or business?
Every home or business should be equipped with a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather Radio. In the event of a watch or warning, most NOAA Weather Radios sound an alarm and turn on automatically. When they are not dispensing watch and warning information, these valuable tools will provide you with detailed forecast information. Many NOAA Weather Radios are equipped with digital Specific Area Message Encoding (S.A.M.E.) technology. This allows the radio to be programmed to receive automatic warnings specific to Bureau County.
