For severe weather alerts to your smartphone or home phone, Storm Shield Alerts has you covered.
Storm Shield App provides storm-based alerts for tornado, hurricane, flood, thunderstorm, winter storm seasons and other life-threatening events through voice and push notifications.
Storm Shield Phone Call Alerts provides storm-based alerts for tornado warnings and severe thunderstorm warnings to your home phone or old flip phone.
"Storm-based or polygon alerts help reduce false alarms by alerting you to sever weather based on your exact location within a county," according to Storm Shield's developers. "Most other apps and source still use county-based alerts (meaning you'd get an alert even if your location in the county is not within the threatened area)."
