City making weather-alert radios available to Baldwin City residents
Baldwin City government is making weather-alert radios available to Baldwin City residents.
The radios are designed to alert their owners of severe weather and can be programmed to receive weather watches and warnings specific to the Baldwin City area.
The radios were obtained for distribution to those residents living in multi-family housing or single-family homes without storm shelters or basements. Baldwin City Administrator Chris Lowe said they will now be available to all city residents wanting them.
About 50 of the radios remain, Lowe said. The radios cost about $30, and residents will be asked for donations when picking them up.
