Amazon has the Eton Scorpion II Rugged Portable Emergency Weather Radio for $28.94. Usually this sells for around $45, and it has great reviews too.
Here’s the thing. Nobody ever wants to be caught off-guard in an emergency. Weather you’re impacted every hurricane season, you live in an area with tornadoes, or you want to be a generally safe and practical person, there’s no reason to not have one of these. It has a multi-band weather radio to keep you informed, powered by the trusty alerts of NOAA. There’s a bright LED flashlight and a USB output that is powered by a hand crank or solar power so you can keep your devices charged up. There’s also a portable charger built right in. That means even if your power is out for days at a time, you’ll be able to stay updated on the weather and keep your devices turned on.
Keep this in your bug out bag and you’ll be ready to brave the storm.
