The Emergency Alert System (EAS)
On January 1, 1997, EAS replaced the Emergency Broadcast System (EBS) as the coordinated means of relaying tornado, flash flood and nationwide non-weather related warnings to the public via the radio and TV broadcast media. Specific Area Message Encoding (SAME) allows NOAA Weather Radio (and therefore the NWS) to DIRECTLY interface with EAS. This digital interface means that, for radio and TV stations, and cable outlets, warnings for tornadoes, severe thunderstorms, flash floods, winter storms and hurricanes can be broadcast over the air faster and without human intervention!  For more information regarding EAS, visit the  Virginia EAS Home Page . To view a map of EAS areas and their relation to the NOAA Weather Radio click here.
