How can I stay updated about the weather in case of a winter storm?

To maintain communication in case of a winter storm, follow these tips:

Make sure you have at least one of the following in case there is a power failure:
  • Battery-powered radio (for listening to local emergency instructions). Have extra batteries.
  • National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) weather radio receiver (for listening to National Weather Service broadcasts).
Find out how your community warns the public about severe weather: Siren, radio, TV.

Listen to emergency broadcasts.
