NOAA Weather Radio – A NOAA weather radio can be a life-saving investment, offering round-the-clock protection for you and your family. Most weather radios cost less than $40. FYI: FREE Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) service was introduced nationwide last June.

Severe Weather Stats:  Last year, tornadoes were reported in 46 states.  In NC,  there were 21 tornadoes resulting in 22 people injured and over 19 million dollars in damage.  North Carolina experiences about 40 to 50 thunderstorm days per year, with 20 lightning fatalities in the state during the past 10 years.  Severe gusts of wind from a thunderstorm called ‘downbursts’ or ‘straight line winds’ can be just as  dangerous as tornadoes.  Hail is responsible for millions of dollars’ worth of damage in North Carolina.
