WX radios available

WX radios available Do you have a weather radio? Is it properly programmed?

Bay County Emergency Services, WMBB News 13 and Midland Radio will be holding a series of weather radio events at local Walgreens stores this summer.

Senior Meteorologist Jerry Tabatt will meet guests to talk how advanced warning can save lives during severe weather events.

Customers can purchase Midland NOAA weather alert radios during the events or visitors may bring in their own radios from home to ensure proper calibration. The NOAA radios transmit immediate notification of severe weather or emergency alert signals broadcasted by the National Weather Service to users, which is helpful when severe weather strikes quickly.

The events will be held from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on the following dates:

July 27 at Walgreen's in Lynn Haven
Aug. 10 at Walgreen's in Callaway
Sept. 7 at Walgreen's in Panama City Beach.
