If you lose power during Hurricane Florence, you can still stay tuned to local TV stations to hear the latest from the Triangle’s top meteorologists.

Here’s how to watch the three local stations online, on mobile apps and streaming services — and how to listen to their broadcasts on the radio.

WTVD ABC11

Whenever the news team is on the air, the station will be simulcasting on its website — abc11.com — and on its ABC11 app. The ABC11 app works on Apple and Android mobile phones and tablets.

If you keep power but don’t have cable, you can watch WTVD on your TV if you have Amazon Fire TV.
