It is National Severe Weather Preparedness week across the country. Now is the time to make any plans on how you and your loved ones will be prepared and ready for the next time your location is impacted by severe weather.
Getting warnings out to as many people as possible is the key to saving lives during severe weather. The market is overflowing with all the latest smartphone apps. For the everyday smartphone user, these apps are too complicated. MyWARN is setting itself apart from other apps because of its ease of use.
Many tornadoes, severe thunderstorms and flash floods strike when you are most vulnerable: when you and your family are asleep. MyWarn is your vigilant weather watcher, monitoring the continuous feed of National Weather Service forecasts and bulletins for specific threats that you specify that are going to affect your precise location. When it detects a threat that you designate, MyWarn will wake you up with an audible alarm so that you can take action to be safe.
The National Weather Service storm based warnings target precise areas that are in the path of danger. The problem is that legacy warning dissemination systems can’t target people that are in the narrow polygons. This means that thousands of people are warned unnecessarily. MyWARN eliminates this problem by using your smartphone’s location services to instantaneously notify you only when are in one of these precise alerts.
A problem with legacy warning systems is that they inundate you with warnings that you don’t care about. You may live in a location where flash flooding is not an issue. You may not be concerned about severe thunderstorm warnings. You may only want to know about tornado warnings, and nothing else. But if you want to go a step further, MyWARN notifications are fully customizable, allowing you to turn specific types of alerts off and on.
A car or truck is no place to be in a tornado, severe thunderstorm or flash flood. MyWarn gives you and your family peace of mind when you are mobile by instantly notifying you when the National Weather Service issues a specific severe weather alert for your precise location.
When severe weather threatens, your immediate action can mean the difference between life and death. Buy yourself and your family the gift of time by getting precise alerts delivered to your smartphone within seconds of them being issued by National Weather Service meteorologists, wherever you are, no matter the time of day. See the alert graphically displayed on your phone. Then be alerted when the threat has ended as well.
