KRDO brings you state-of-the-art, personal storm warning services in the Pikes Peak region and southern Colorado
Recent improvements in how the National Weather Service defines warning areas have resulted in significantly higher accuracy and smaller warned areas, compared to the decades-old county-wide warning method. http://www.nws.noaa.gov/sbwarnings
The WeatherCall® system continuously monitors the National Weather Service's NOAA weatherwire. Using computerized mapping (GIS) the system compares a subscriber's specific location to the location of the warning area. When a severe weather warning includes your location, you will receive a phone call from Chief Meteorologist Matt Meister, 24 hours a day. You can also receive the warning by email with a detailed map of the threat or by SMS text messaging.
WeatherCall@Home WORKS WITH ANY TYPE OF PHONE.
For iPhone or Android smartphone users, WeatherCall ToGo is available.
