NOAA Weather Radios

The City of Seaside sells NOAA Weather Radios to city residents at greatly discounted rates. These transmitters broadcast continual local warnings, watches and forecasts from the nearest National Weather Service Office. The NOAA frequencies operate outside of the normal AM/FM frequencies, and require special receivers such as these radios. NOAA weather radio transmitters are required in all new residences and vacation rentals in Seaside, and highly recommended in existing homes. Radios in Clatsop County should be set to channel 1 to pick up our local transmitter, KEC 91 in Astoria.

Radios are available for purchase by City of Seaside residents at the following locations:

City of Seaside Office of Community Development
1387 Avenue U
Seaside, OR 97138

Seaside City Hall
989 Broadway
Seaside, OR 97138

This program is funded through a generous partnership with the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
