The NewsChannel 5 Network has teamed up with Midland Radio, Kroger and Walgreens to make NOAA weather radios available.
The NOAA weather radios (NWR) use Specific Area Message Encoding - or SAME - to alert you to weather or other emergencies when they threaten your area.
Weather radios can be purchased at Kroger for $29.99.
The SAME codes for Tennessee and Kentucky counties in our area can be found in the Severe Weather Safety Guide on our weather page.
Here is the next scheduled appearance for our weather team:
Wed, February 20 4-7PM - Kroger at 1201 S. Campbell Blvd, Columbia, TN
