The Best Argument for Getting a Weather Radio

You hear advice to pick up a weather alert (or all-hazards, they're the same thing) radio before pretty much any severe weather outbreak. Here's another view: why the off-season may be prime time to pick one up.

I and many others who do weather safety talks around the state are known to give away weather radios from time to time. It’s pretty much the off-season in Kansas now, which means our thoughts are probably not on severe weather. As this article points out, that’s the time a “surprise” event can present the most risk!

Last night, a destructive tornado tore through a community near Charleston, S.C., destroying homes and lofting debris tens of thousands of feet into the air. Tornadoes were not in the forecast last night—this happened largely by surprise. Owning a weather radio is your best defense against unexpected natural disasters like this.
