A couple of months ago I wrote that I had decided to give weather radios to buyers of mobile homes. Here in Florida, and in other parts of the country, tornados and severe weather can occur very quickly. I felt that mobile home buyers might find these instruments to be useful. You never know if people will like a gift, but this week I got some feedback concerning this idea of mine.
Some buyers who recently purchased a home from me in Zephyrhills were the first recipients of a radio gift. Last week they informed me that it went off a couple of times during one night when severe weather had been predicted. Luckily, Zephyrhills avoided getting hit, but I saw on the news that nearby at the Pasco County Sheriff's department there had been severe damage. On the news I could see several vans that were tossed around like toys. If this weather had gone through a mobile home park in the middle of the night when everyone was asleep there could have been injuries, or worse.
With hurricanes, we have notice way ahead of time that one is coming. However, tornados and sudden strong storms are less predictable and can take place during the night when we are sound asleep. Not a good time to have your home behave like Dorothy's in the Wizard of Oz. A weather radio can be set for a local area's broadcast and will silently sit on your counter, until the national weather service issues a storm watch or warning. It will then sound an alarm to let you know that there is dangerous weather in the area. Important information for you to know. Most of these radios also let you hit a button at any time to get up-to-the-minute weather information. Not a bad thing for golfers, sportspersons, travellers, etc to know.
I got my customers' radio at Publix when they had their hurricane supplies station set up in the fall. However, I know that Radio Shack sells them and probably other stores as well. The prices seem to run between $25 and $60. This might be a good investment for homeowners to consider. Real estate agents may also wish to consider giving these to their buyers in the future.
