Would a weather radio warn me about a tornado?

If you live or are traveling in tornado country, then the answer is a resounding “Yes!” to owning a weather alert radio. Emergency weather alert radios can be lifesavers and come in portable or tabletop models, operate on batteries or an AC adapter, and even can be powered with a cigarette lighter adapter. External antennas are available to boost reception range and many modern weather alert radios also incorporate strobe or emergency warning lights.
