Storm Shield sends severe weather alerts for your exact location by issuing storm-based warnings, polygons drawn in the expected path of severe weather where the maximum threat exists.
For decades, severe weather alerts have been issued based on counties. But the problem with traditional county alerts is that people not in the path of the storm end up getting false alarms.
Storm Shield's polygon alerts solves this problem of county-wide alerts. If your location is inside a poloygon (the threatened area), Storm Shield sends you the alert.
Storm Shield issues severe weather alerts for tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, thunderstorms, winter storms and dozens of other customizable life-threatening weather events via voice and push notification.
With Storm Shield, the instant you receive an alert, you can share those alerts with family and friends to ensure they stay safe as well.
