How do you receive severe weather alerts during the middle of the night?

What about being alerted when camping?

Are you looking for a device that will ALERT you?

NOAA Weather Radio, the voice of the National Weather Service, is the answer. It provides continuous broadcasts of the latest weather and emergency information directly from NWS offices. Stations operate 24 hours a day, every day of the year.

During severe weather or other emergencies, routine weather broadcasts are interrupted with special warning messages. Specially designed radios sound an alarm indicating that a weather or other hazardous emergency exists, alerting the listener to turn on the receiver. Weather radios are "Smoke alarms" for severe weather.
