KHB34 (sometimes referred to as Miami All Hazards) is a NOAA Weather Radio station that serves a part of the South Florida metropolitan area on 162.550 MHz, and can also be heard about 60 miles (100 km) east into the Atlantic Ocean, nearly to the Bahamas. It is programmed from the National Weather Service forecast office in Miami, Florida, with its transmitter located in Andover. It broadcasts weather and hazard information for the following counties in south Florida: Broward and Miami-Dade. The signal also reaches North Key Largo and inland parts of mainland Monroe, eastern Collier, far southeastern Hendry, and most of Palm Beach counties – however it does not issue alerts for those areas.

In 2012, NOAA began all-Spanish station WZ2531, which transmits from Hialeah on 162.500 MHz, and is the first Spanish station in Florida. WNG663 also covers Miami-Dade on 162.425 MHz from Princeton, near Homestead. Other adjacent stations programmed by the Miami office are WWG92 Naples to the west, WXM58 Belle Glade to the northwest, and KEC50 Mangonia Park (West Palm Beach) to the north.
