For tornado-prone zones, this home safety weather station might come in handy. California-based electronics company Eton created this device called the ZoneGuard to deliver the weather forecast quicker and more convenientLY -- even when the TV is off. The ZoneGuard is a flashing and alarming clock radio. It is an alert system for severe weather conditions.

Even if you're away from the device in your house, the ZoneGuard will notify you using satellite alert systems. The system comes with one base ZoneGuard and two smaller pods that receive signals.

Along with its visual alert bar, the ZoneGuard has a built-in speaker that notifies you exactly what is being broadcast. The gadget is linked with a weather-reporting radio channel and can receive location-based forecasts.
