Preparing for severe weather

Lawton, OKLA_Our Seven News Weather team always warns that severe weather can strike at any time, and when it does, everyday means of communication can fail.

For weeks they've been urging the public to stay prepared. They say the best way to do that  is to get a weather alert radio.

Saturday, they were on hand as nearly 2-hundred people purchased their severe weather radios from rains electronic in Southwest Lawton.

"I have been afraid of storms," Lahoma Cantrell told us, "and I have always had a cellar until the last 20 years and no place to go now."

Chief Meteorologist Justin Rudicel is glad so many people turned out.

"It's great to see the public listening to us and the importance of a weather radio and obviously to save and help their family," he said.

If you missed you're chance to purchase one, don't worry you can get your radio at any electronics or convenience store. The average price starts at 30 dollars.
