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:
• Tap alerts to view info
• Show multiple severe weather layers on the map at the same time
• Flood watches & warnings
• Tornadoes & Thunderstorms
• Hurricane & Tropical Storm forecast tracks

Current temperature, accurate radar, and push notifications is all you get (for more conditions tap on the location icon, but still no AQI). I have done a count of how many different alerts and it's 166 with 10 non-weather (for example 911 outage, network message, and child abduction) but still very important alerts. So a great push notification and radar companion to go alongside any other weather app or apps you may or may not choose. The lettering on the map is also unreadable.

really need to simplify the interface. you have to set every single alert, individually, and pick an alert sound and style for every one... takes forever to setup. give us a general "level" (extreme, severe, etc.) of alert... and an option to have a global sound/ and option to override do not disturb and I'll consider it again. but I don't have hours to setup each individual alert.... Scripps does great with news and weather but this app doesn't reflect that.

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.
