After a radio tower was vandalized and collapsed this December, damage to the transmitter affected the National Weather Service’s ability to send and receive NOAA alerts.

National Weather Service technicians and regional maintenance personnel have restored the signal on the tower as a temporary solution.

However, the location of the antenna has lessened power and the signal may not transmit as well as it did previously.

Depending on an individual’s location, they may not receive signals on their NOAA weather radio.

The city of Wichita Falls assures residents that the city’s Outdoor Warning System is still working properly.

They two systems do not rely on one another and the Outdoor Warning System will alert residents of potential tornadoes.

With storm season coming up quickly, residents are encouraged to sign up for the city’s CodeRED Weather Warning system.
