TULSA, Okla. — For severe weather alerts to your iOS or Android device, the Storm Shield App has you covered.

Named one of the best in the nation, Storm Shield is available, free to download, on iTunes and Android.

Storm Shield App provides storm-based alerts for:

  • Tornados
  • Hurricanes
  • Floodings
  • Thunderstorms
  • 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.
