Current Status:  We have identified a new location for the Bellflower NWR and are currently working the contractual process for that location.  Once that process is complete, we will be able to provide additional information on the new tower location and when we anticipate the NWR returning to service.  Tentatively, we expect the NWR to be back on the air in the Fall of 2022.

We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and suggest that you tune into one of the NOAA Weather Radio transmitters listed below.  The coverage map of each transmitter is available by clicking the links below.
