CHAMPAIGN COUNTY, Ill. (WCIA) — NOAA weather radio is back up and running. The service alerting people in times of severe weather had been down since the beginning of November.

Champaign County EMA tweeted a message Monday saying service was back on. Crews replaced part of the transmitter over the weekend.

The tower is more than 400′ in the air. High winds made it dangerous for workers to get up there and fix it.
