CNN (or Fox, MSNBC, etc) news satellite feed (for national alerts)
Radio Shack National Weather Service Alert radio (for local alerts)
Individual states have other alert systems. For example, California
has EDIS, Oklahoma and Florida have their own systems.
When the alert level was raised from Yellow to Orange, the DHS web site
was updated long after all the 24-hour news networks were running
scrolls across the bottom of the screen announcing the upcoming press
conference about the change.
But what would you do with the information?
