Storm Shield

       iOS iPhone

Severe weather alerts for your exact location. Storm Shield Weather Radio gives you storm-based alerts for tornado, hurricane, flood, thunderstorm, winter storm seasons and other life-threatening weather events via voice and push notification.

Storm-based or polygon alerts help reduce false alarms by alerting you to severe weather based on your exact location within a county. Most other apps and sources still use county-based alerts (meaning you'd get an alert even if your location in the county is not within the threatened area).


What people are saying:
• Storm Shield "alerted our family of the Broken Arrow, OK tornado, faster than the TV and tornado sirens." - Robyn, Broken Arrow, OK resident

• "I was in Oklahoma City during the tornado... we were right in its path. Your app literally was a life saver." - dcalk12


Additional features include:
• Get NOAA alerts no matter where you are in the United States.

• See Hurricane and Tropical Storm forecast tracks from the National Weather Service (NWC).

• See where NOAA watches and warnings are issued by switching between map overlays.

• Save five additional locations to make sure friends and family at home, work, or out of state stay safe.

• Voice alerts can wake you in the middle of the night or give you information when you can't stop to look at your phone.

• School Closings for Baltimore, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, Detroit, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Tulsa and Buffalo.

• Watch live video streams when available (usually during local coverage of severe weather in Scripps TV markets, listed below).

• Current Conditions, 7-Day Forecast, and Hourly Forecasts

• View weather photos and submit your own weather photos (available for Scripps television and newspaper markets).

• Share a view of your map screen to let friends and family know where severe weather is happening, especially if it affects their location.


Battery tips:
• Storm Shield uses iOS Location Services to balance location accuracy and battery life.

• Turn off Location Tracking and instead set one of your five locations to where you are most often.

• You can throttle up or down Storm Shield's Location Tracking to balance location accuracy and battery life.
