Region 8 Storm Team helps keep community safe

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Warm weather is officially here and with it comes the potential for severe weather.

We have already seen many rounds of severe weather move through the area this year and the Region 8 Storm Team wants to make sure everyone is safe.

The Storm Team partnered with Barton's Lumber Company to bring back their Weather Radio Event.

People lined up on Thursday to get their weather radios programmed just in case severe weather strikes.

"If I'm sleeping in the evening and there's warnings out, I want to be sure and hear them," Jonesboro resident Phyllis Harris said.

The Storm Team was at Barton's programming weather radios all day until 2 p.m.
