Start Atlantic hurricane season off right and make sure your tropical weather alerts are switched on!
The Weather & Radar alerts are part of the Storm Alert System which notifies you when your specific location is at risk of intense or severe storms, dangerous winter weather, and now, hurricanes!
How it works:
The alerts are activated when your particular area is at risk for tropical cyclone impacts, including strong wind gusts, flooding rain, and storm surge if you live near the coast. The alert will appear as a banner on your app (shown in the image below) and include text describing the expected impacts.
The alerts are designed to notify users with up to 48 hours of lead time so that you can get a head-start on protecting yourself and your loved ones from potentially dangerous tropical weather impacts.
