Most people know to go to a safe room when severe storms are coming, such as the interior room on the first floor of their home (or the basement if you have one).
But how do you know if a severe thunderstorm is coming if you are sleeping?
A desktop NOAA weather radio can alert you when storms are coming.
A handheld NOAA weather radio can be a great gadget when you aren't at home and to keep you up-to-date on the weather when you are in your safe room.
You might also consider getting a NOAA weather radio that also listen to AM and FM radio and VHF TV channels. Many of these include a flashlight and handcrank dynamo charger, so they will work even if you forget to change the batteries.
