NOAA Weatheradio is an important warning tool. However, since it is county based, you still receive many warnings that are not for your location even when you have it programmed correctly. MyWarn notifies you only for the alerts that affect your specific location.
Be Ready When Severe Weather Threatens...
Your need for severe weather information becomes even more critical when you are away from your normal surroundings in a hotel or on the road. MyWarn levels the field by keeping up with where you are and delivering any alerts that are issued for your precise location.
Often when a serious tornado happens, someone claims the storm struck without warning. Truth is, that rarely is the case. MyWARN increases your odds of survival by getting precise warning information to you seconds after it is issued by the National Weather Service.
Two simple things that can increase your survival chances in a severe weather event. You have to receive warnings and know what actions to take to protect you life and the lives of your family members. MyWARN gives your this information instantly.
Overwarning desensitizes people MyWarn eliminates the frustrating interruptions caused by legacy warning distribution systems that sound for alerts you aren’t in. You won’t have to worry about the “cry wolf’ problem ever again.
