British Red Cross Emergency I love this ability to tell all around the world if someone I know may need to take care during an emergency warning. I live in Britain but my daughter and brother live in Ohio USA; I am able to give them a message telling them five hours ahead of the fact of an emergency weather bulletin in their areas. I even have friends in Eastern Europe and in many other parts of the world for whom I can alert them of a potential danger. Highly recommended.
Used to be great. Still good but... I'm now getting alerts for rain ice and floods other side of the country. I only want alerts where I live in Manchester. I sent up radius areas but I'm getting alerts for floods from rivers in Yorkshire or Wales... I'm 100% sure it won't effect me one bit. Please only give alerts for the areas I specified like it used to.. Other then that it's good to get the alerts.. Just not when it's over 200 miles away etc.
Great Idea Yes, a great idea. Seems still in development? Location search doesn't appear very good at present. I have to settle for the nearest major location rather than a specific location. As I said great idea and I like it, just needs a bit more work perhaps.
Don't bother When you search a place to add, the search comes back with no match...every time! Don't waste your time installing this one.
Great idea but a couple of issues Works well generally and is a fantastic idea, however it could be easier to configure and please make it so the back button goes back a page and not exits as that's annoying. Also I'm getting a lot of alerts, usually weather related and when it zooms on the map it's nowhere near any of the locations ive set up to monitor!
- When you view an alert you'll see the area affected as well as a pin for the place you're monitoring - so you can more easily assess the situation at a glance. We've also made sure that the alert is easier to read.
- We've improved alerts from the Met Office, including colour-coded warnings in line with their own alerts, and a more accurate visual indication of the affected area.
- Fixed an issue where some users couldn't configure their notification settings
- Support for accessibility fonts
