... Severe weather awareness week concludes...

The National Weather Service and the New York state office of
emergency management have proclaimed April 24 through 30 severe
weather awareness week in New York state.

NOAA Weather Radio is one of the best ways for people to receive
immediate hazardous weather information. Most models have a warning
alarm feature. Using a special audio tone... National Weather
Service meteorologists can automatically activate these radio
receivers and give live information on the exact location and
movement of dangerous storms or flooding.

Newer models use the same /specific area message encoding/ digital
technology as commercial broadcast stations use to activate the
emergency alert system. NOAA Weather Radio is also a direct
information source for other natural or man made hazards such as
earthquakes or toxic chemical spills. That/S because NOAA/S National
Weather Service maintains a close relationship with National...
state... and local emergency management agencies.

Even when the weather is not threatening... NOAA Weather Radio is a
great source for up to the minute weather information... forecasts...
marine weather... and climate information... twenty-four hours a day
and seven days a week direct from your local National Weather
Service office.

Weather radios are relatively inexpensive... and they are available
at your favorite electronics supply store.

In western New York... NOAA Weather Radio stations transmit from
Buffalo on 162.55 mhz...
Rochester on 162.400 mhz...
Spencerport on 162.525 mhz...
Lyons on 162.475 mhz...
Watertown on 162.475 mhz...
Frewsburg on 162.525 mhz... and
Little Valley on 162.425 mhz.

All broadcasts originate from the National Weather Service forecast
office in Buffalo.

Today concludes severe weather awareness week. Over the last 20
years severe weather has killed over 100 people in New York and
caused over three quarters of a billion dollars in damage. On
average... the National Weather Service issues 400 severe
thunderstorm warnings... 17 tornado warnings... and about 150 flash
flood warnings each year in New York state.

Plan now to keep safe during severe weather.
