Weather Radio

 Severe weather season is here and the best way for everyone to protect themselves and their families for tornadoes and severe thunderstorms is by purchasing a severe weather warning radio. WEEK, WHOI, ServPro of Peoria and Midland Radio have teamed together with all Hy-Vee Supermarkets and Walgreens Drug Stores to make a Midland All Hazard radio available to all our viewers at a discount price.

 For a limited time only, the Midland All Hazards radio will be available for $29.95, normally a $49.95 purchase.
 
These radios will alert our viewers and their families of life-threatening storms entering any of our counties in our viewing area.  These radios provide the “first alert” of severe storms even before the radio stations and television stations can interrupt programming with our own warnings.  These events…floods, severe thunderstorms and tornadoes can affect thousands of our viewers every year. Some years are pretty light, some are very heavy with severe storms.
 
Our viewers can look for the custom displays with a picture of our weather team at all Walgreens and Hy-Vee.  See below for a list of all area locations.
  
The weather team will also be conducting “programming parties” at select Walgreen and Hy-Vee locations for the next three months to help program these radios with the custom counties for which you want to be warned.
