TULSA, Okla. — 2 News Oklahoma recommends everyone use the Storm Shield weather app to get important notifications and weather updates anywhere they bring their phones.

Before severe weather moves into your neighborhood, you'll want to be sure all of your Storm Shield notifications are turned on.

The home page of the app shows the radar along with some forecast information. In the top-left corner should be a Settings button.

Tornado Warning notifications and Severe Thunderstorm Warnings should be turned on ahead of any severe weather event in the area.

There are also separate sections for specific types of weather events, including flash flooding.

Depending on the smartphone, the settings for the device itself may need to be changed if a user still doesn't receive notifications after turning them on in the Storm Shield app.
