KSLA News 12 Editorial: April 30th-Weather Radios Save Lives

The past few days have been the busiest and most deadly of the tornado season so far this year.

Many have been killed including those in the small community of Mayflower, Arkansas. That's why we track storms. It was in the middle of the night when a tornado touched down north of Bossier City early Monday morning. When that was happening, Stormtracker Steve was live on the air issuing the warnings, telling people to take cover.

But if you're asleep, you're not watching T.V.

That's where weather radios are life savers. They automatically go off when you are in danger. KSLA News 12 has again teamed up with Midland Weather Radios and Academy Sports to make sure these radios are available in the ArkLaTex.

If you don't have one, now is the time to act. It can save your life. I'm James Smith.

    I asked for your thoughts on providing an extra $150,000 for overtime for Shreveport patrol officers. Most of you are in support of the increased patrols but question if it will be enough. Here are some of your responses.
