GREER, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The National Weather Service said Monday that a heavily-used transmitter for its weather radio system was broken.

Officials said the transmitter on Paris Mountain in Greenville County, which broadcasts on a frequency of 162.55 megahertz, experienced a major hardware failure. They said that transmitter will be off the air for an indeterminate amount of time.

The Weather Service said that during the outage, residents who typically use that transmitter to receive weather information via the radio need to reprogram their receivers to the following frequencies:

  • For the southern and western Upstate: Tune to a frequency of 162.425 megahertz.
  • For the northern Upstate: Tune to a frequency of 162.400 megahertz.
