NOAA weather radio event set in Seneca

(KMZA)--The Nemaha County, Kansas Emergency Management Office has secured a grant through FEMA- Hazard Mitigation Grant Program to purchase two hundred Midland Weather Radios to offer free of charge.

County Emergency Management Director Eddie Aldrine says a weather radio programming event for those wishing to receive a free radio will take place on Wednesday evening, April 24th, from 5:00 to 7:00 at the Nemaha County Community Building located at 1500 Community Drive in Seneca.

Aldrine, KSNT Chief Meteorologist Matt Miller, Bruce Jones (former chief meteorologist at KSNT) with the Midland Radio Corporation, and other Midland Radio Corporation staff will be on hand to program weather radios.

According to a release from Aldrine, the radios will be available at a first come- first serve basis. Batteries will be included with the radios.

The radios will only be given to Nemaha County residents. Residents of other counties will not be eligible for a free radio. There will be a limit of one radio per household.

Aldrine says additional weather radio programming events may be scheduled at a later date depending on the number of remaining radios after the April 24th event.
