Question about Midland WR-100 Weather/RDS Radio
The radio is defective. When the receiver fails, it defaults to a high pitch tone, alerting the user that the radio receiver has failed. It is not worth repairing the unit so buy a replacement. This was a common failure among the WR-100 units

Check this website's FAQs page- http://www.crh.noaa.gov/lsx/?n=nwrfaq. Your answer may be in FAQ #10. It may be also that your local NWS transmitter may not have been receiving a good transmission because of the type of severe weather that you had. Maybe you should call your local NWS office and plea your case. I don't know if this will help, but this is my suggestion.

First, make sure you have a battery installed, and then run it off of the wall adapter. Extend the telescopic antenna all the way out. Go to MENU and then select the local channel for your county (channels 1-7 - use whatever channel is strongest). Once you select the correct channel, then hit the MENU button again, and then you should hear weather forecasts. Press the VOL UP or DOWN buttons to get the right volume for you. If you get to the 'CHANNEL' selection and still have a tone, then you have a defective radio that you will need to exchange. Good luck - let me know if you get it working okay. Happy New Year!

The high pitch sound is a sign of the autooscillation of the intermediate frequency amplifier from the tuner in your radio - hardware defect. The only way to fix that is to replace the tuner and realign it. This would cost you about $100 for the part and labor.
Since you can buy a brand new unit for less than $40 it's clear what you should do.
