Storm Shield Severe Weather App
This app turns your iPhone or Android 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 notifications. Users can program the app to receive alerts for up to five locations such as home and work or to ensure friends and family are safe. Sophisticated alerting technology provides precise storm-based alerts directly to your phone when one of your locations falls within an NWS watch or warning box. The Storm Shield App is available on your iPhone or Android device for $4.99.

- AUDIO: Get audio alerts (beeps followed by a brief description of the alert) that could wake you in the middle of the night, or give you information when you can't stop to look at the phone.
