Works, but it keeps announcing the same alerts over and over, making it too much of a nuisance, so I disabled it. Improved UI changes, but still doesn't allow changes to alert sounds. Also, the developer evidently does not read user comments, because they have not replied to any since 2019, a lot of which contain very good suggestions. Too bad.

And still far too many false alerts - a any as 5 today, no details or info at all, and there has been heavy rain. That's probably FEMA but still makes the app useless. So problematic that I still have to use a few other weather apps for safety. The app is unreliable because of the many false alerts. Still neither reliable or trustworthy. Why hasn't this been fixed after many, many months?

I have used this app for a couple of years now and really like this app! Especially during times when dangerous weather is wreaking havoc! It has also came in handy for alerting friends and family in other parts of the country to evacuation orders and other dangers. *An improvement I would like to see (if possible) is the ability to change the notification sound - It currently uses whatever the phones default notification is. Not a real big deal, but would be nice.

Thank you so much for your feedback, Geoff. We will share your recommendation with our design & development team. We have several users who would like to be able to customize the sound of the notifications, so we will consider this feature for a future version. We rely on input from our users to improve the FEMA App.
