A good app overall. I thank the Red Cross, it's important. I took off one star just because it's so difficult to get all the notifications set up, there's so many of them. I have 2 locations I watch. Each location has over 50 sliders with 2 or three sliders within each of those. There needs to be a simplification of the notifications system.

The app is fine. I wish the notifications included the location, in addition to the nature of the alert up front. It's annoying to have to click through to learn where the alert is. I get a lot of notifications from lots of apps and don't want to be forced to open the app to get the key info.

I sat and listened to my sister's phone go off multiple times for a tornado warning, while my phone never went off once. The app is so broken that it is going to get someone killed. Unreliable. Sometimes it will go off, sometimes it won't even with settings unchanged. Just buy a weather radio to keep you safe. Do not trust this app.
