About this app

Everything you need, nothing you don't. Florida Storms is not just another weather app with a radar. It's a clean and fast
interactive map that alerts you to every storm, while at the same time delivers credible real- time audio and text alerts from
the Florida Public Radio Emergency Network. Using a combination of Baron's exclusive storm track algorithms and the
expertise of a meteorologist, you're certain to receive the most up- to- date information on any potential weather hazard.

View the latest tropical weather updates from the National Hurricane Center, find out if you’re in an evacuation zone, check
if you're in the path of a dangerous storm surge, or just review a checklist of items your family should have in case of a
weather emergency. Once you have Florida Storms, you won't need multiple apps to prepare for the next "big one".
Whether it's just a routine lightning storm that might send you indoors, or a major hurricane threatening your neighborhood,
Florida Storms is the simplest and fastest way to stay informed of mother nature's next move.

Features of Florida Storms include...

-Live radio stream of the nearest Florida Public Radio Emergency Network partner station, with option to choose from
12 others in the state in case of evacuation or traveling

-Push notifications from multiple sources, including the National Weather Service, the National Hurricane Center,
Baron's exclusive Doppler radar, and local emergency management personnel

-The ability to set up alerts for other locations, such as your vacation home or evacuation destination.

-Interactive real-time mapping of high-resolution radar, lightning, future radar, satellite, hurricanes and forecast models.

-Our favorite feature: “The feeds” offer real- time filtering of information from official sources, such as the nearest

-National Weather Service office, the National Hurricane Center, Florida Department of Transportation, the FPREN
Storm Center and local emergency management offices.

-A simple, effective way to learn how to prepare for the next weather disaster, including what to do before, during, and
after a storm

-Updates from certified FPREN meteorologists, including Facebook Live videos and blog articles.

It's a nice app, one of the few that seems to completely line up with NOAA/NWS forecasts or draws from their data, while having future 24 hour radar available, not to mention multiple NEXRAD stations in the state plus national hi-res. The only thing I could recommend is that tapping on the widget takes you directly to current conditions. WUCF FM not on streaming station list. One thing, at 8:30 at night current conditions page shows a sun icon

I really want to like this, but the interface is REALLY clunky - feels like a throwback to the 1990's. Yes, it's free and contains no ads, and yes, it does have weather & radar, but it's slow and counter-intuitive, and I have to hunt for the real-time data I need amidst a bunch of worthless "informative" garbage that can be found easily anywhere - we really don't need an (uneditable) hurricane supply checklist, etc. The app has potential - please streamline & update it - thanks!

This was a GREAT app, except for tolerable signal stability issues. It was my app to turn to as i travelled around the world, I could still listen to my favorite NPR station. Then in mid-2019, an update made it FAR MORE UNSTABLE and cumbersome. Trying to listen to even 5 minutes of news required 3-4 restarts. It was so frustrating, I was forced to give up. PLEASE, bring back the old version of giving us radio and weather with just ONE touch, not the series of hoops that I have to jump thru
