Polk County to Utilize Billboards for Emergencies
DES MOINES, Iowa - Twenty-nine digital billboards across Polk County will begin warning drivers of potential disasters and emergencies, the Polk County Emergency Management Agency announced Tuesday. It's a new collaboration between the agency, the National Weather Service, and Clear Channel Outdoor - the owner of the billboards. When tornado warnings, gas leaks, and severe weather strike, these billboards will light up with a warning message, telling drivers to tune into WHO Radio for details.
