I saw both a Facebook post and on the CoCoRaHS blog
a discussion about the value of having a NOAA Weather Radio. Also in the post is a nice plug for http://noaaweatherradio.org/
NOAA Weather Radio broadcasts are also available via live streaming over the web. A group of home weather station operators, website owners, CoCoRaHS volunteers, and spotters have developed a web site to live stream NOAA weather radio broadcasts across the country. This will not replace a weather radio in your home since there is no alerting capability, but it is a convenient way to access the broadcasts for other parts of your state or the country. The list of stations also include three from Canada. Visit http://noaaweatherradio.org/ for more information and to listen to live streams.
Congratulations to Cutty Sark Sailor, codegod, sacreyweather, satcop, jmcmurry, and chappelledpc members who made noaaweatherradio.org a great replacement for streaming weather radio after WU discontinued their service.
