Do you have a NOAA weather radio? They are just as important as smoke detectors. They save lives. I bought my Grandpa one the year of the Utica tornado. He was a WWII vet and not new technology happy. He loved knowing he could hit a button on his radio like a snooze button and hear the latest changes in weather. I showed him how to put his SAME code in so he received only watches and warnings for his town. He was hard of hearing and loved that he could hear the alarm when bad weather came to his town in Kansas. For 19.00 plus the cost of backup batteries, this can save your life or the life of those you love. I have no monetary connection to the manufacturers of the radios. First alert, Midland (my fav) and others. They can be found at Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, Target, etc.
