Always accurate. Can monitor multiple locations. Have had this app for several years now and grabs your attention much more than ordinary weather apps when you need it to. I monitor a large area in the Texas Panhandle so I can alert drivers to quickly changing conditions. You never know when a driver isn't able to receive data, but he might be able to get a text or phone call.

This is a great app. The alert for the tornado warning came on today even a few seconds before the sirens and sent us right into our shelter. It also gives you a brief list of the main things you need to remember in the situation. I installed this because I am afraid the city emergency sirens are not loud enough to wake me up at night, the app's tornado alert however is loud enough to wake up anyone, I would think. There is a different alert sound for tornado watch/ T-storm warning (those would be just your regular notification sound). You can also see if relatives or friends you connect with on the app are okay. The app runs humbly in the background until it is time to make its appearance. Thanks, Red Cross!

It sounds an alarm (the same one) for everything, including canceled storms alerts and regular thunderstorms. I downloaded this app to get tornado warnings overnight, but during storms, it sends an alarm notification every few seconds to minutes regardless of the reason. So I have to keep it off overnight. Which is pointless. I would love an app that allows you to choose which alerts get the alarm and which are just silent notifications. Very frustrating. It is accurate, at least.
