4-22-05 – New technology may help keep more Texomans safe during the spring storm season. Local emergency management teams in Carter County have prepared by installing a 360 degree camera on top of Ardmore’s City Hall.
The camera allows for a birds-eye-view as storms roll in. The view is broadcast over the city’s channel 7 everyday.
County emergency management officials say a new radar system will also prove effective in warning residents of impending storms, especially if there is a power outage and television reports are not available. The system will show where the storms are heading and quickly they’ll arrive.
Experts always recommend keeping a NOAA radio with batteries in homes in order stay informed of watches or warnings.
