Frequently asked questions: 

Q: Is the service really free? 

A: NEWS102.3 KRMG does not charge for text messages sent to or received from 95920; however, if you do not have unlimited text messages on your wireless plan; you may be subject to standard text rates through your wireless provider. 

Q: A thunderstorm warning was issued for Tulsa County, but I didn't receive a text. 

A: You will only receive a text message upon activation of The NEWS102.3 KRMG StormCenter, if there is a new and serious threat to public safety, and/or there is breaking news associated with the storm (damage, etc). 

Q: What times of day can I expect to receive texts from NEWS102.3 KRMG? 

A: We only send StormCenter text alerts between the hours of 7am - 10pm, unless there is a tornado warning for one of our StormCenter counties (Creek, Mayes, Okmulgee, Osage, Pawnee, Rogers, Tulsa, Wagoner, and Washington) 

Q: Why was my text message so delayed? I received an alert after a storm warning had already expired. 

A: Generally, texts are instantaneous. From the time we push 'send' in our system, to the time you receive the alert, it should be less than 30 seconds. However, sometimes, wireless providers have text alerts that get delayed in transit due to system maintenance or other provider issues. Sometimes, you may have had a lack of signal strength or signal outage when the text was sent, which may also cause a delay in receipt. If you experience these problems regularly, please contact us. 

Q: I'm unable to send and receive text message on my cell phone. Is there another way I can get StormCenter information from you on the go? 

A: While text messages are the quickest and most effective means of alerting you to a severe weather threat, you can also get StormCenter information on our Facebook page at http://facebook.com/krmgtulsa. Remember to always have a batter powered radio at home in case the power goes out and/or cell service becomes unavailable during a storm.

  • Responding to concerns about personal security for lawmakers after last week’s gun attack at a Congressional baseball practice, U.S. House leaders are moving to provide extra money to members for protection back home, as well as new funding to bolster the work of police and security officials on Capitol Hill. Under a plan approved by a House spending subcommittee on Friday, the Congress would provide an extra $7.5 million next year to the Capitol Police for an “increased security posture” around the Capitol, along with $5 million to the House Sergeant at Arms to help with security for lawmakers back in their districts. “We are taking a new fresh look at security,” said Rep. Kevin Yoder (R-KS), the Chairman of subcommittee that deals with funding for the Legislative Branch. Our FY18 Legislative Branch funding bill increases efficiency & transparency in Congress, enhances security for Members & our constituents. pic.twitter.com/FI36tF2XeH — Rep. Kevin Yoder (@RepKevinYoder) June 22, 2017 “The tragic events of June 14 weigh heavily on these deliberations,” said Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-NJ), the Chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, which could vote on the extra money as early as this next week. Also being put into motion is a separate plan to funnel an extra $25,000 to each member of the House – about $11 million in all – to help them increase security back in their districts. “The scariest part for us is there used to be this impression by the public that we all had security everywhere we went,” said Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH). “Now, everyone knows that isn’t the case,” Ryan added, as he lent his support to the extra funding for security as well. The money in this budget bill would not take effect until the new fiscal year – which starts October 1 – so, House leaders are ready to okay extra money immediately for members worried about security back in their districts. Roll Call newspaper reported that could be approved in coming days by the House Administration Committee. Yoder said Congressional leaders are also waiting to see if money raised in campaign contributions for House elections could be put to use for security as well. “Pending an FEC (Federal Election Commission) decision, we’re also looking at whether campaign funds could be used to continue to support security upgrades at personal residences,” Yoder added.
  • An unknown aged girl went to the hospital with burns to her legs, following an overnight house fire. KRMG’s told the fire started around 2:40 a.m., at a residence on West 50th Court North. The homeowner says he was able to get his daughter, grand daughter and sleeping brother out of the house. So far, firefighters haven't released a cause for the fire.  The homeowner believes fumes from a gas can in the garage may have cause the blaze.   
  • Multiple people had to be rescued early Saturday morning in Rogers County. OTEMS paramedics report a boat started to sink on Oologah Lake just after midnight. “Additional information was received that the boat had its nose in the air, four individuals were in the water, and only one was wearing a PDF (personal flotation device),” an official said. “A Rogers County Deputy spotted what might be the boat south of Winganon Bridge but was unable to determine the precise location. However it was located by the Northwest Water Rescue unit and at 0048 hours the rescue boat reported that it had located the victims and was loading the fourth individual into the boat.” KRMG’s told the victims were hanging onto the hull when they were found. So far, no injuries have been reported.  Officials also haven’t released any names.   We do know the Oklahoma Highway Patrol has taken over the investigation.  
  • Tulsa investigators are looking for a driver who fled the scene, after hitting a male pedestrian late Friday night. Police report the auto-pedestrian collision happened around 11:34 p.m., near East Admiral and North Yale. “The pedestrian victim has been declared deceased at this time,” police said.   Investigators don't have a description of the driver or the car.  Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
  • We know this might start an argument, but according to Business Insider, Oklahoma's most famous band EVER is the Flaming Lips. Business Insider admits the song 'She Don't Use Jelly' is the Norman-based indie rockers only U.S. hit. But they say the band has had many hits in the U.K. and Europe and, even more impressive, three Grammys to their credit. Some on the list are hard to argue with, like Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band in New Jersey or Nirvana in Washington State. You can see the entire list of the most famous bands here.
