Where to purchase your weather radio and how to program it

Whether it is Severe Weather Awareness Week or not we want to keep you prepared no matter the weather, and the best way to remain weather aware is by having a weather radio.

Weather radios are paramount and are considered to be the best indoor warning systems. They are mobile and the newer versions can charge cells phones while on the go.

The red, Emergency Compact Crank Radio, has a USB charger, solar power charge panel, dynamo crank to recharge the radio for emergency purposes, a flashlight, and more. The white Weather Radio will also keep you and your family safe by sending you weather alerts and non-weather messages such as toxic chemical incidents, nuclear power plant accidents, and amber alerts which are important too.

Both weather radios are by the Midland Radio Corporation and each will keep you informed. So, purchase a weather radio today and residents located within the CSRA should program the frequency channel to 162.550 to remain updated on tornadoes, floods, fires, and earthquakes all by purchasing your weather radio at Kroger or by following the links below to locate the Kroger closest to you.  Also, find your county frequency channel by clicking the NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards link below.
