The National Weather Service is having a problem with it's Avilla-Joplin weather radio transmitter tower. It's producing a low signal but NWS says it is not reliable.
You must switch your weather radio frequency or you will not get a warning.
"The simple thing to do is to just take your weather radio, turn it on, and reprogram it for a loud, clear channel," says Joplin Emergency Management Director Keith Stammer. "The thing that they should do is honestly very straight forward, and that is to take their weather radio, to set the programming, to select a channel, and then just run up and down the channels until you find a channel that is strong and clear, and accept that one and use it."
