** WEATHER ALERTS FOR YOUR EXACT LOCATION **
Storm Shield is "a detail-rich app... with an emphasis on smart, active, automatic alerts for severe weather... Its ability to pinpoint data to your location could literally be a life-saver."
Turn your iOS device into an emergency weather radio. Get storm-based alerts for winter storm season, tornado, hurricane, flood, thunderstorm and other life-threatening weather events via voice and push notification. Storm Shield delivers alerts using NOAA polygon warnings.
>> Now with version 2.5: get School Closings for Baltimore, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, Detroit, Indianapolis, Kansas City, and Tulsa.
** HOW WEATHER ALERTS WORK **
>> Storm Shield uses new precise storm-based alerts, and alerts you to severe weather based on your exact location within a county. Other services use county-based alerts which result in people at one end of a county receiving alerts for weather that will not impact them.
>> If your current or saved locations fall inside a NWS watch or warning box, you'll receive alerts from Storm Shield.
>> If your locations are outside a watch or warning box (even though you may be in the storm and the county), you would not receive a warning from Storm Shield.
** WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING **
>> "Storm Shield is like having a sophisticated weather radio on your iPhone."
- The Unofficial Apple Weblog
>> "During the roughest part of the storm I was constantly getting push messages to my iPhone and iPad... Thanks for developing this amazing app!"
- Joe C.
