Public Information Statement

Statement as of 2:00 PM CST on March 03, 2015


... Todays topic for severe weather awareness week is methods of
receiving severe weather information...

Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson has proclaimed the week of
March 1st through 7th as severe weather awareness week
in Arkansas.

A different topic will be discussed each day... and todays topic
is methods of receiving severe weather information.

Ask people where they get their weather information when severe
weather is occurring... and they will most likely answer with the
name of their favorite television or radio station... or the
internet.

But... if people are not at home or do not have the TV or radio
turned on... they may not get the word. And if they are asleep...
they are vulnerable to severe storms.

NOAA Weather Radio all hazards... the voice of the National Weather
Service... broadcasts weather information 24 hours a day. A special
alerting feature sounds a tone when a warning is issued. Even if
you have turned in for the night... you will be alerted immediately
to dangerous weather conditions.

Many recent models of weather radios are equipped with a feature
called same... which stands for specific area message encoder.
This allows you to select counties of interest to receive alerts.
Without this feature... you would be warned of storms in other
parts of the listening area but not necessarily your location.

Most weather radios come with battery backup... so their
alerting capabilities are not affected by power outages.

There are currently 25 NOAA Weather Radio transmitters serving
Arkansas. These transmitters and their frequencies are...

    Grove OK 162.50 megahertz
    Springdale 162.40
    Fayetteville 162.475
    Harrison 162.525
    Yellville 162.50
    Wardell MO 162.525
    Mountain View 162.45
    Cherokee Village 162.475
    Jonesboro 162.55
    Dyersburg TN 162.50
    Fort Smith 162.55
    Russellville 162.525
    Morrilton 162.475
    Little Rock 162.55
    Russell 162.40
    Marvell 162.525
    Memphis TN 162.475
    Mena 162.40
    High Peak 162.425
    Gurdon 162.475
    Star City 162.40
    Broken Bow OK 162.45
    Texarkana 162.55
    El Dorado 162.525
    Fountain Hill 162.475

NOAA weather radios can be purchased at stores that sell radio
equipment... as well as at discount stores and department stores.

Outside of NOAA Weather Radio all hazards... there are many
sources available to access National Weather Service warning
information. Television and radio stations have been mentioned
as well as the internet. Other sources include cable and
satellite TV... telephone notification services to which people
subscribe... pagers... cell phones and personal digital assistants.

&&

Notes for the news media...
there will not be a formal tornado drill this year conducted
by the National Weather Service in Little Rock. Even so...
people are encouraged to practice going to a place of safety
when the NOAA Weather Radio alarm is sounded during the routine
weekly test. This test is on Wednesday between 11 am and noon.
In the event of threatening weather on Wednesday... the test
is postponed until the next good weather day.
