How can people receive information about a severe storm?
We had a dramatic example of what happens when a tornado hits a community late at night last April in Woodward, when an EF3 tornado hit around 12:20 a.m., killing six people. It is critical that all of us have at least THREE different ways to get a tornado warning, and one of those should be a NOAA Weather Radio! The battery back-up and loud warning alarm will help ensure you get a warning even while you're sleeping or if the power is out. You should NOT rely solely on a smartphone app, a television or a warning siren to wake you up!
