Having multiple ways to get severe weather information is important. It could mean the difference between being caught by surprise or giving you time to get to your safe place. This is especially critical at night as a weather alert radio will sound the alarm to wake you up. Weather Alert Radios also have a battery backup, should your power go off the radio will still come on.

Back again for 2021, the KCRG-TV9 First Alert Storm Team will once again be programming weather radios! We have two events planned so far this year:

  • *Wednesday, May 12 - 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the upper parking lot at KCRG-TV9′s studios in downtown Cedar Rapids.
  • *Saturday, June 19 - 7:30 a.m. to Noon at the KCRG-TV9 booth in the Downtown Cedar Rapids Farmer’s Market.
      • *As a reminder, NO weather radios will be sold at either event. You will need to bring one with you.
