Closings and Delays Policy

The following is information about our closings policy:

WAOW utilizes an automated Closings and Delay system that allows organizations to enter their own information in a secure fashion.

Schools, large businesses (those with 50 or more paid employees), churches and government agencies which regularly make weather-related announcements may request access to our automated reporting network.

  • Full Address
