About this app

Severe weather alerts for your exact location. Storm Shield gives you storm-based alerts for tornado, hurricane, flood, thunderstorm, winter storms and other life-threatening weather events via voice and push notification.

Storm-based alerts help reduce false alarms by alerting you to severe weather based on your exact location within a county. County-based alerts can result in false alarms, warning you when your location in the county is not within the threatened area.

These features come with your app download:

• Get voice alerts just like a NOAA weather radio via push notification anywhere in the United States.
• Hi-Def radar map is your home screen so you can quickly see what's going on at your locations.
• View current conditions, hourly and daily forecasts.
• Save additional locations to ensure family members stay safe.

View NOAA severe weather alerts on the map to see where dangerous weather is happening:

I love this app, but I'm only giving 3 stars. I got a new phone, I tried to install the app, and no matter what I did, the app had issues finding my location, it could not search by zipcode (gave the same 'oops' error as setting up with location), and when I search by town and state, after I select where I am on the map and click 'set location', it does nothing. I canceled my subscription, since I can't use the app.

An app update, a phone update or both recently broke this app. On startup, no map type is selected, I have to enable type each time or I just have a blank map area. I have an active subscription to future radar. Most of the time if I click on it the purchase screen pops up. If I click to buy what I'm already suscribed to, the app crashes. Periodically it will work, but it's pretty random. While future is acting up, if I go into settings it's completely blank. Please fix this and update. Thanks

Got a new phone, now I can't access my app. Can't get past the initial location screen. I'm getting the alerts, but can't click on them to read them as it brings me right back to the page asking for my location, which isn't working. Seems like many people are experiencing the same issue. It's a good app, when it works, but I am considering cancelling my subscription and finding a better app that works if this can't be resolved soon.
