If you own a weather radio, especially in DeWitt County, you've likely noticed some irregularities in recent weeks and months.
That is because the weather radio stations operated by the National Weather Service have been experiencing some very unique issues. Chris Miller at the National Weather Service in Lincoln indicates their weather radio in Champaign has been down for well over a year now, and that is proving to be challenging.
DeWitt County also shares the weather radio in Bloomington/Normal, and that radio went off the air several weeks ago. Miller says weather damaged it rather extensively.
