St. Louis, MO – The NOAA Weather Radio transmitter in St. Louis, KDO89 (162.550), is off the air due to a telecommunications issue, affecting listeners across east-central Missouri and southwest Illinois. The outage has left many without a critical source of weather updates, particularly significant during severe weather seasons.

According to the National Weather Service (NWS) St. Louis, the transmitter experienced a failure on Wednesday. Technicians are actively working to resolve the issue, but there is currently no estimated return to service date. The affected coverage area includes St. Louis County, St. Charles County, and surrounding regions in Missouri, as well as Madison, St. Clair, and Monroe counties in Illinois.

The outage extends beyond St. Louis, with similar issues being reported in Central Illinois as of Thursday night. This disruption underscores the importance of having multiple sources for weather information. Residents in the affected areas are advised to use alternative means such as smartphone apps, local news stations, and social media for updates on weather conditions and alerts.

The NWS emphasizes the need for residents to stay informed through other channels until the NOAA Weather Radio service is restored. Further updates will be provided as the situation develops.
