Weather radio Wednesday is back

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Weather Radio Wednesday returns May 8 to the Walgreens in Wilmington (corner of College and Oleander). 

First Alert Meteorologist Colin Hackman and other volunteers will be available to answer your severe weather questions and program weather radios from 4-7 p.m.  Walgreens will have programmable weather radios from Midland available for purchase.  The price is $34.99.   

A programmable weather radio is an important item for every family.  The radio can be programmed to alert your family during: tornado, flood, and severe thunderstorm warnings for your specific county.  This can be especially valuable at night when you are asleep. 

The First Alert Weather Team always stresses the need for a NOAA Weather Radio to stay alert for any kind of weather. And we're making sure your radio is programmed correctly.
