DUQUESNE, Mo. —
Weather radios have arrived for Duquesne residents.
David Weaver, assistant to the mayor, said the city has received 150 weather radios that will be given free to residents within the tornado zone. Residents are asked to bring proof of address, such as driver’s license or utility bill to City Hall, 1501 S. Duquesne Rd., to obtain one. City Hall is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The radios were purchased with a grant from the United Way of Southwest Missouri and Southeast Kansas. A donation has been received from State Farm Insurance Co. to help buy more radios. Weaver said city officials hope to provide them to Duquesne residents outside the tornado zone too if enough can be purchased.
