LAGRANGE – One of the most effective things you can do to protect yourself from severe storms is get a NOAA Weather Radio.

The Indiana Department of Homeland Security is working with all 92 counties to distribute more than 22-hundred weather radios purchased with a federal grant.

They're focused on residents of mobile homes, economically disadvantaged citizens, and those who may not receive weather alerts by traditional means.

Noble County Emergency Management Deputy Director Terresa Griffiths says they've passed out more than 200 weather radios since 2010. They've gone to single parents, the handicapped, and low income residents. Each office or manager location for mobile home parks in the county received a weather radio as well.

LaGrange County Emergency Management Director Stewart Bender says he's personally distributing radios and will work through the sheriff's department and fire departments.

The radios receive more than 60 types of hazardous alerts, including severe weather. They have a backup battery in the event power goes out.
