Nebraska Severe Weather Awareness Week Begins March 14
Omaha - KVNO 90.7 FM radio will broadcast public service announcements three times daily March 9-17 to inform listeners about Nebraska Severe Weather Awareness Week.
In Nebraska, March 14-18 is designated as Severe Weather Awareness Week. Statewide government, business and public entities utilize this week to raise awareness, prepare, test and practice procedures for what we would do during a severe weather event. If no severe weather is expected or occurring, the National Weather Service will conduct Nebraska's statewide tornado drill on Wednesday between 10 and 11 a.m.
KVNO will participate in this drill, which presents an excellent opportunity for everyone in the listening area at work, school, or home to practice safety measures.
As Omaha's premier public radio station, KVNO serves and enriches the community and university through quality programming that enlightens, entertains and informs. KVNO staff is committed to providing unique educational opportunities to students through training and employment in a professional environment, and to engaging an increasing number of listeners from communities both on-air and online.
More information on Severe Weather Awareness Week and our broadcast service is available at KVNO.org and KVNONews.com.
