FORT BENNING, GA (WTVM) - Storm Team 9 made a special summer stop to program weather radios!
Chief Meteorologist Derek Kinkade and meteorologists Greg Majewski and Elisabeth D'Amore were at the PX on Ft. Benning from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, July 7.
Viewers were able to purchase weather radios and three AA batteries there, or brought their own from home. Storm Team 9 was on hand to properly program radios and answer any questions.
Remember that although our main severe weather 'seasons' for tornadoes usually happen in the spring and late fall, severe thunderstorms and flooding can be threats year-round as we have seen this summer.
It's important to have a way to get severe weather information - especially when sound asleep - and a programmable NOAA weather radio is a great resource.
