How To


Home Alerts

Weather Radar and Alerts provides a user with the ability to receive alerts from the application for

  • Severe Thunderstorm Warning
  • Tornado Warning

The current method for Home Alerts in Weather Radar and Alerts is to set the County, State of the home location. In the future, this location will be specific to the Latitude and Longitude. Currently, the application will trigger the alert if the warning is issued in the county you have selected. Once the change from County, State to Latitude and Longitude is completed, the alert will only be activated if your home location is within the warning polygon issued by the National Weather Service.

NOTE: Warnings need to be turned on in order for Home Alerts to be active.
