Programming weather radios ahead of the storms

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT)-  The Region 8 StormTeam was getting prepared for the storms moving in Thursday afternoon.

From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the team was set up at the Baton's location in Paragould. Residents came out to get their old weather radios re-programmed and others to purchase new ones.

Paragould resident Kenneth Gifford said he would recommend a Midland weather radio if you don't already have one. "I'd tell them to come get one because it's a life saver," Gifford said.

The StormTeam will next be at the Barton's location in Walnut Ridge on May 1.
