Local Viewpoint - Severe Weather Awareness Week

By Ted Fortenberry - bio | email

This week is Severe Weather Awareness Week in South Carolina, and in conjunction with this educational initiative WMBF News has team up with Midland Weather Radios and Walgreens to provide weather radios at a special reduced price.

Providing weather coverage to help keep you and your family safe is our top priority at WMBF News... on-air and online. We have invested in state-of-the-art weather systems and have the only HD Doppler radar network in the region. In addition to keeping track of severe weather coverage from the WMBF Storm Team, we believe having a weather radio is vital to receiving advanced warning when severe weather is approaching.

We encourage you to take the time to pick up a severe weather radio at area Walgreens locations or order online at www.wmbfnews.com. The radios are easy to program, and we've provided county frequency information and step-by-step instructions on our website.

During Severe Weather Awareness Week take the time to add this extra protection for your family. This basic piece of equipment could provide you with the advance warning necessary to help save your life when severe weather approaches.
