(WTOL) - This year, the spring storms have been powerful and deadly.

Tornadoes have repeatedly ripped through regions of the country. The rain has been relentless and floodwaters have ravaged our nation's mid-section.

All of this destruction and loss of life shines a bright light on the significance of an early warning system. That's one reason WTOL 11 has led the way to provide you weather radios at a discounted price.

These radios are programmed to announce severe weather alerts for specific counties. The alarm is jarring enough to awaken you from a sound sleep. The minutes these warnings provide could be life saving.

The WTOL 11 Weather Team uses the finest technology available to track storms and keep you safe, once you turn on your TV. The weather radios will awaken you. WTOL 11 will be there when you need us. When severe weather strikes, stay alert. Stay tuned in. Stay safe.
