NEWS102.3 KRMG is committed to providing you the best severe weather coverage on radio. And, for years, Oklahomans have come to depend on KRMG for the most accurate and dependable weather forecasting and life-saving severe weather coverage.
You should always have a battery-powered radio nearby in advance of and during severe weather, programmed to FM 102.3 and AM 740 KRMG. You'll get life-saving information from our StormCenter team, with the combined resources of FOX23 Chief Meteorologist James Aydelott and the entire FOX23 weather team, as well as The National Weather Service.
How can I get Severe Weather Alerts?
We provide KRMG StormCenter alerts by text message free of charge. Text "WEATHER" to 95920 from your phone and you'll automatically be signed up.
And, when you become a friend of KRMG on Facebook, you'll see frequent status updates with radar images on our severe weather threat.
What is StormCenter?
StormCenter is defined as the activation of severe weather coverage on KRMG.
KRMG Activates Storm Center Under These Conditions:
During non-winter events, StormCenter activation begins when the National Weather Service issues a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for one or more of the following counties: Creek, Mayes, Okmulgee, Osage, Pawnee, Rogers, Tulsa, Wagoner and Washington.
During winter weather events, StormCenter activation begins once the National Weather service issues the warning, even though it may not go into effect for 12-18 hours later. Our goal is to help you prepare for the impending weather by providing you with updated weather including snowfall accumulation expectation, city and state emergency management preparedness, road conditions, etc.
What Should I Expect During StormCenter Activation?
Upon issuance of the warning by the National Weather Service, NEWS102.3 KRMG immediately breaks into our talk programming to provide you with the information contained in the bulletin.
You'll hear KRMG StormCenter reports every 15 minutes (airing at :00, :15, :30 and :45) sooner if conditions warrant. With Oklahoma's volatile weather, NewsTalk KRMG often interrupts regularly scheduled programming to provide continuous KRMG StormCenter team coverage.
You'll also hear a KRMG StormCenter alert tone that plays every 90 seconds. Similar to the 'crawl' of the weather information you see at the bottom of your TV screen during severe weather, this tone heard on KRMG alerts you that severe weather is in the area or are on the way, and that you'll get another update on the situation within 15 minutes.
How Long Do StormCenter Activations Last?
It depends on the severity of the storm.
During non-winter events, KRMG StormCenter coverage remains activated until all the warnings for our Storm Center counties (Creek, Mayes, Okmulgee, Osage, Pawnee, Rogers, Tulsa, Wagoner and Washington) expire.
We will continue to provide StormCenter coverage until all warning expire in our StormCenter counties and the effects of the storm on our community (power outages, driving conditions, school closings, etc.) have been minimized.
