NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio


NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio provides a continuous broadcast of the latest weather information from the National Weather Service. NOAA Weather Radio is an "all hazards" radio network, working in conjunction with the Federal Communication Commission's Emergency Alert System. In addition to weather related watches and warnings, the NOAA Weather Radio system can provide information on all types of hazards, including Civil and National Emergency Messages.

The radio program can be found on the VHF radio band, on frequencies ranging from 162.400 to 162.550 MHz. There are over 900 NOAA Weather Radio transmitters across the United States, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the U.S. Pacific Territories, and the number is growing. North Carolina is served by over 27 NOAA Weather Radio transmitters which are located within North Carolina as well as in 3 neighboring states. These transmitters provide broadcasts to all 100 counties in North Carolina including the adjacent coastal waters. Information on the Weather Radio transmitters that serve North Carolina is available on the North Carolina NOAA Weather Radio Network web page.
