There IS a Severe Weather Warning System In Place

Why rely on the state or the county to purchase and build an emergency warning system? A severe weather warning system is already in place and it saves lives every year. NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio receivers can be purchased at electronics stores and online for as little as $30. These special radios sit silently until activated by signals transmitted from the National Weather Service giving residents enough time to get to a safe place. Severe weather alerts from the NWS are transmitted immediately when issued, so there is no delay in getting a warning. And, just like a smoke detector, an inexpensive weather radio can wake you at night when we're most vunerable. Personally, I don't understand why everyone doesn't have one of these radios in their homes. They're cheap and they work. More info at http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/nwrrcvr.htm
