I received my first tornado warning on this new app. I had the Tornado App before this one. I have to say this app really needs some more changes. Plus, it did alert me of a tornado, but it was like 80 miles away. I want to get an alert for what I have it set for 15 miles, not the gray zone you have it set for. And to check where the tornado is, you have to blow the map up so big it's crazy. With the tornado app, you could touch the tornado icon and get the approximate location or address.

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.

This app replaced the tornado app. This app is horrible. The old app would actually show a map and the warning area. This one issues a warning but doesn't even tell location. I had one go off early this morning and wasn't even for my location. I live in an area with no sirens. So I need something that is accurate. This is not it. Reactivate the original app.
