What happened to it? This used to be a great app, where I could see warnings relative to the radius around my area. Now it shows my metro area as the warned area, when the storms aren't heading this way. I've used this for several years, but will be uninstalling now. Another case of making changes for the sake of change, without any real thought as to what the end user wants/needs. Huge fail.

Really appreciate this app!! Would suggest being able to turn on/off alerts per location, as needed. If I am not traveling to a selected location, I would like to turn off alerts for it but keep the location in my selected lists. Also, would like to be able to mark each alert as read when many come through in a short period of time and it gets confusing if multiple locations and alerts come in simultaneously. Also, your contact us form did not work.

Liked the previous version better. In this one it seems most of the customization has gone away. Your contacts and who you're monitoring is gone, you can't select your monitor areas, seems like it's more general geographical areas instead of specific locations (i.e. instead of a specific location, you get a county, which would probably work for most cases.)

What's new

• Improved signposting to help you customize your alerts quickly.
• Canceled alerts will no longer be received as a push notification but only displayed as an in-app alert.
• Changed the default radius to 1 mile to eliminate seemingly ‘duplicate’ alerts.
• Increased additional monitored locations to 8.
• Added percentage completion tool to help you track your preparedness level.
