Millions of people lose property every year and some lose life to severe weather every year. Weather can be one of the most destructive and dangerous forces in nature. To make matters worse, it can turn on a dime. When it does, will you be informed? Being notified of such conditions can be the thing that saves your life! Whether it is Floods, Lightening, Hurricanes, Heat Waves, or Tornadoes, when bad weather is on it’s way, you need to know.
Creating alerts of emergency weather, that you receive via email or your phone, is a simple way to stay up to the minute on potentially hazardous conditions in your area or in an area you may be traveling to. Along with the option to receive daily forecasts, Weather.com gives you choices of how often and which types of violent weather conditions you want to stay on top of. Setup takes all of 5 minutes or less. One of the nice features is the ability to log back into your account later and edit how often and what kind of alerts your receive.
The following is a great video put together by Jack Spirko of The Survival Podcast showing you exactly how to setup Emergency Weather alerts.
