This morning Chief Meteorologist Wade Hampton from KPLC TV stopped by the Cajun Radio studio's to fill us in on the NOAA Weather Radio's and how important it is to have one when severe weather hits our area.

Of course, we are coming out of the Winter months and heading into Spring and that's when severe weather can pop up at any time and if you have a NOAA Weather radio then you can be warned early.

Wade and the weather gang from KPLC will be out on location today.  Here is where you can go meet Wade and get your NOAA Weather Radio.

Wade posted this on his Facebook page which will give you all the info you need about tonight's event!

If you live in the Lake Charles area be sure you come by and see us Thursday afternoon from 4 to 7 PM. We will be at the Walgreens on HWY 14; the address is 2000 Gerstner Memorial Dr. Right where 12th Street intersects with Hwy 14. You can purchase a NOAA Weather Radio for $34.99 and we will program it for you. Or bring one from home and we will check it out for you. Hope to see you there...

--Wade Hampton

Here is what the radio looks like.

So make sure you go out and see my buddy Wade Hampton and the rest of the Weather team from KPLC and get your NOAA weather radio.
