TULSA, Okla. — For severe weather alerts to your iOS or Android device, the Storm Shield App has you covered.
Storm Shield App provides storm-based alerts for:
- Winter storms
- Other life-threatening events
The app lets people know alerts through voice and push notifications
"Storm-based or polygon alerts help reduce false alarms by alerting you to severe weather based on your exact location within a county," according to Storm Shield's developers. "Most other apps and sources still use county-based alerts."
This means that all weather data in the Storm Shield app only alerts you about the weather if it impacts your specific area or location.
Storm Shield is a product of The E.W. Scripps Company and has a meteorologist providing extra weather coverage through online videos, articles, and social media.
