NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards (NWR) is a nationwide network of radio stations broadcasting continuous weather information directly from the nearest National Weather Service office. NWR broadcasts official Weather Service warnings, watches, forecasts and other hazard information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Your weather radio receiver has a battery-powered backup and stays silent unless there is an emergency message. As soon as an emergency alert is available for your area, you will hear the message on your receiver. In emergency situations, seconds can mean the difference between finding safety and being stuck in harm’s way. Every home and office should be equipped with a weather radio receiver. It really can save your life. “All Hazards” messages include natural (e.g., tornado, hurricane, floods, earthquakes), technological (e.g., chemical release, oil spill, nuclear power plant emergencies, maritime accidents, train derailments), AMBER alerts and terrorist attacks.
Weather radios are available at every Schnucks store. Look for the KMOX display to purchase your receiver for $29.99! Click here to locate a Schnucks store.
