Not reliable

App is unreliable when you need it the most. It will send out warning signals, but then will not load the alert. Frustrating to be warned of a tornado and not be able to read the notifications that are posted. Needs an update to fix these issues desperately. It is storm season!!!!


This app is a worthless piece of crap. If I didnt have my text alerts from my local municipality I wouldnt have known about the last two tornadoes that touched down 1/4 a mile from my home. And I never ONCE got any kind of alert from this stupid app.


Love this app when it works. Unable to set up options, it keeps crashing. It needs to be reliable in order for it to be effective. Please fix it.

Extremely Vague, not really helpful.

This apps needs a lot of work to make it good and a trustworthy source of information during a weather emergency. The app need better information and more of it to guide people on how to handle a serious situation. Locations you chose need to be specific to where you live an not within 25 miles of where you live. Warnings and watches need to be broadcast as soon as they come out from the National Weather Service, not 10-15 minutes after the fact. This app needs to give a comprehensive list of what to put in an emergency kit and not just these three quiz questions. Severe weather can get very serious in the right conditions, if the Red Cross really wants to help then create an app that reflects it.

No way to change location. Came up on me wrong for me. No way to move to side

Love it

I love it keeps me safe from tornados

Issues with watch/warning statements

I like this app but when I try and read the warning or watch statements it wont load, even with wifi or lte, other apps that need data load just fine but not tornado. Whats the point if I cant read the alerts??
