Severe weather coverage by HPPR

In order to provide notification of severe weather to the public, most of HPPR’s transmitter sites are equipped to continuously monitor the National Weather Service (NWS) and immediately interrupt regular programming and directly broadcast any severe weather warning issued by the NWS.  These warnings include severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings. 

The list below identifies the counties covered by this notification service.  Next to the county is the HPPR station(s) to tune to in order to hear the NWS warnings.

While HPPR provides this severe weather warning service as part of its overall mission to serve the public interests of the High Plains region, we also advise residents to directly monitor the National Weather Service themselves for the most complete and reliable severe weather information.  This can be done in several ways through these sources:

NOAA Weather Radio:  http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/

NWS Website: http://www.weather.gov/

NWS Mobile Website: http://mobile.weather.gov/#typeLocation
