Today’s NOAA Weather Radio test postponed

Due to the potential for severe weather today, the northern Indiana National Weather Service office has postponed the NOAA Weather Radio test that it normally conducts on Wednesday mornings. The office will conduct the test on the next good-weather day.

Meanwhile, the Fort Wayne NOAA Weather Radio transmitter continues to operate with a greatly reduced signal, making it impossible for some weather radios to receive the signal.Repair parts are on order but the transmitter might not be back up to full strength for a week or two. It is therefore important to check your weather radio. If it is not picking up the continuous broadcast from the transmitter, that means it will not alert you to incoming severe weather until the transmitter is repaired! Find other ways to receive any watches or warnings that might be issued today or any time between now and when the transmitter is repaired.
