Handheld Weather Radio
With One Touch Tornado Only Alerts
In our part of the country, Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas, tornado season is of great concern. Bad weather is not limited to spring and early summer. We had a deadly tornado hit near our office on 12/31/10. While we've sold a couple thousand similar radios from this company, this one is an improvement. It will allow you to set it to a tornado only alert, filtering out non-emergency alerts while you sleep. Although I have alerts setup on my smartphone, I know there are times when I need something to wake me up and I am not getting that alert. You can use this handheld radio as your primary alert system or as a backup!
