It's something many people say has been needed for years, and now, the city of Frankfort will finally be getting a National Weather Service radio transmitter.

For years, Frankfort has been considered a "dead zone" for weather radios. That means, people who live in the capitol city were not alerted in the event of severe weather.

Until now, the nearest transmitters were in Lexington and Louisville.

Governor Beshear announced Thursday that Frankfort will be getting a transformer of their own. It is expected to be finished by the end of the summer.
