PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PADUCAH KY

...FALL SEVERE WEATHER PREPAREDNESS - NOAA WEATHER RADIO AND
MOBILE PHONE ALERTS...

NOAA WEATHER RADIO, THE VOICE OF THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE,
BROADCASTS CONTINUOUS WEATHER AND OTHER HAZARD INFORMATION 24
HOURS A DAY, 365 DAYS A YEAR.

NOAA WEATHER RADIO WILL PROVIDE YOU ROUND-THE-CLOCK WEATHER
REPORTS, WARNINGS AND OTHER INFORMATION TO HELP YOU PREPARE FOR
THE DAY. DURING EMERGENCIES, ROUTINE BROADCASTS ARE INTERRUPTED
FOR WATCHES, WARNINGS, AND OTHER CRITICAL INFORMATION. YOU WILL
SLEEP BETTER KNOWING THAT YOUR FAMILY CAN RECEIVE EMERGENCY
WEATHER INFORMATION NO MATTER WHAT TIME IT OCCURS.

EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE A NOAA WEATHER RADIO TO ENSURE THEY RECEIVE
WARNINGS.

YOUR WEATHER RADIO SHOULD HAVE SAME (SPECIFIC AREA MESSAGE
ENCODING) CAPABILITY, BE KEPT "ON" AT ALL TIMES, HAVE FRESH
BATTERIES IN IT, AND BE PLUGGED INTO AN OUTLET.

ANOTHER EXCELLENT WAY TO RECEIVE WEATHER WARNINGS IS VIA MOBILE
PHONE ALERTS. AMERICA`S WIRELESS INDUSTRY IS HELPING BUILD A
WEATHER-READY NATION THROUGH A NATIONWIDE TEXT EMERGENCY ALERT
SYSTEM, CALLED WIRELESS EMERGENCY ALERTS (WEA), WHICH WILL ALERT
YOU IF A TORNADO WARNING OR FLASH FLOOD WARNING IS ISSUED FOR
YOUR LOCATION. YOU CAN FIND MUCH MORE INFORMATION ON THIS AT:
