Not all weather scenarios are peaceful and pleasant around the Bass Islands, so preparedness remains important all year long. Now is a good time to acquire a weather radio if you do not already own one. Winter advisories, spring winds, and summer storms can all put a huge dent in outdoor plans. Make sure you aren’t caught unprepared.
The National Weather Service operates a broadcast station (KHB97) which serves our geographical region from Sandusky, Ohio. Well-known to mariners using VHF radios, the frequency is 162.400 Mhz. The SAME code for Ottawa County automated alerts for weather radios is 039123.
