Midland Weather Radios

KNOE 8 News has partnered with Mac's Fresh Market, Academy Sports, and Walgreens to offer a way for everyone in our viewing area to receive important weather information as it becomes available with the Midland Weather Radio. When the alarm sounds, it's time to tune in to KNOE 8 News to learn in detail what immediate preparations need to be made and what actions need to be taken to protect your family.

The National Weather Service uses a special radio band that can only be picked up by an official NOAA Weather Radio. In the event of severe weather, this radio will automatically notify you and your family of inclement weather in the area.
