A disaster can take out power, and if you have been depending on a television or radio for updates, you end up being disconnected. Instead of taking such a chance in risky to dangerous weather, be aware at all times of the conditions with a weather station.
On a basic level, weather stations digitally display temperatures, barometer readings, ice alerts, heat index, and have wind and rainfall sensors for detecting other conditions crucial to those experiencing a disaster. With a wireless design, a weather station for the home can also be equipped with radio and clock functions. A radio is particularly important for receiving full news, relief instructions, and NOAA updates for all types of disasters.
Connectivity is important when standard grid systems are disrupted by a disaster. For staying ahead and keeping safe in such conditions, equip yourself with a weather station.
