Weather Alerts for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing

In lieu of all the crazy weather, Hurricane Sandy, major winter storms, tornadoes, you name it, I thought it’d be a good idea to pass this link along.  The Special Needs NOAA Radio provides visual and vibrating alerts to keep the deaf and hard of hearing informed of upcoming hazardous weather conditions.  This is especially helpful at night when many deaf and hard of hearing people remove their hearing aids or CI processors.

Here’s the link for more information: http://www.nssl.noaa.gov/users/wood/public_html/NWR/spc-nds-nwr.html

Other good places to keep track of alerts are: Twitter, Facebook, and weather websites.  Many emergy departments also offer text alerts sent to your phone.
