More than 10,000 weather radios were sold last week during News9 and Wal Mart's special promotion. Local emergency management personnel were on hand in many Metro area Wal Mart stores Saturday, April 5 to program weather radios for free. Wal Mart also offered weather radios at a special, discounted price Saturday. At participating stores, nearly 6000 weather radios were sold on Saturday alone.
Weather radios are still for sale at many Oklahoma Wal Mart stores in the Electronics Department. Many electronics employees are also trained on programming the radios, should you need assistance.
