Star Valley Receives New
Weather Warning System
The National Weather Service has recently installed a new
NOAA Weather Radio (NWR)
site to service Star Valley. The transmitter was installed at The Narrows
between Thayne and Grover, and has been operational since October, 2002.
A dedication ceremony for the Star Valley NWR site will be
held at the Lower Valley Energy building located at 236 North Washington in
Afton at 1:00 p.m. MST Monday, December 16, 2002. The ceremony will be
broadcast live over the Star Valley NWR. United States Senator Mike Enzi and
United States Congresswoman Barbara Cubin have been invited to be the Keynote
Speakers at the ceremony. The public is invited to attend. The new site was
the result of congressional action taken by Wyoming Senators Enzi and Craig
Thomas, and Congresswoman Cubin. The efforts of officials at KRSV Radio and
Lower Valley Energy were instrumental in establishing the site.
"This transmitter will enable the National Weather Service to
communicate important weather and community safety information to residents of
Star Valley, day or night. A seven band NOAA Weather Radio, equipped with an
automatic alarm, can help protect families and their property by providing
warnings and other weather information 24 hours a day," said Joe Sullivan,
Meteorologist In Charge of the Weather Forecast Office in Riverton, Wyoming.
To receive up-to-the-minute forecasts and warnings, residents
of Star Valley can tune in NWR station WNG-569 at 162.425 MHz.
