How to cure previous version glitches. After a full uninstall/reinstall, to get multiple locations to work with alert selections you want, load first location & accept all alerts, load other locations (and again allow all alerts) and only then can you edit your preferences one by one. Hopefully new update fixed that and maybe there's less jumping through hoops. Now if updates in future don't wipe out your choices... But this is too important to have to put up with the glitches.

Update: I think the alert issue was fixed with the new update as the number as been cleared; I thought we had a flood watch but it disappeared when I updated the app, so maybe it expired. Thanks! -- The new look is better, but the first time I opened it after updating, it said 62 alerts. I only have 3 locations saved. Is there a way to clear them? We have severe weather today and so now I'm up to 67, and some locations have duplicate alerts but different information in each...kinda confusing.

Hi Katie, we're aware of the bug. Our developers published a new version yesterday - version 3.0.2 - that fixes the badge count issue that you mentioned in your review. We hope this clears up any confusion!

The main reason I got this app was that it reminded you of things to do to keep your home safe (testing smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms, updating emergency kits, etc) But their last update to the app DISCONTINUED that feature. Now it's just a glorified weather event alert system. On top of that it sends me an alert for one event over and over, leaving me with 45 notifications for one thunderstorm. You removed the most useful feature and then made the rest annoying. Uninstalling this app!
