SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — Overnight storms are common in KELOLAND. 

Stay prepared for when severe weather escalates by using the KELOLAND Stormtracker App and a weather radio. 

KELOLAND Meteorologist Brian Karstens said you can follow live radar on the KELOLAND Stormtracker App. But for when you are sleeping, a weather radio helps you stay safe. 

Karstens said weather radios with SAME alert technology are highly recommended. Tornado sirens are intended to only alert people outdoors, Karstens said, that’s why a weather radio can help alert you when you are inside or when you are sleeping.
