R8 Stormteam in Pocahontas programming weather radios



POCAHONTAS, AR (KAIT)-  The Region 8 Storm Team is stopping in a handful of different towns across the area to help keep you prepared for severe weather.

Ryan, Justin and Bryan were at Barton's in Pocahontas programming Midland Weather Radios Thursday. The radios broadcast NOAA weather alerts which can be customized for your precise location. Just over 90 radios were programmed.
One of those radios belonged to Randolph County native Rick Haley who depends on nice weather to run his lawn service. "We have quite a bit of bad weather around here every once in awhile so I figure I gotta keep on top of it," Haley said.

If you missed the Region 8 Storm Team in Pocahontas, they'll be at Barton's in Osceola next.
