    I like this app but I still get flood warnings for all over the state even though I have set my warning area to 10km from home. And I get TFB notification at 12:15AM every morning!!

    I like this. A lot. Takes a bit of setting up but once done it doesn't fail to alert. The only problem is when a report location is set up there seems to be no way of deleting it if you don't need/want it anymore. A bit annoying. Would be 5 stars if that issue was addressed.

    Ugh. Need a way to select what I want to see. 15 emergency alerts today, none count as an emergency. 20ish yesterday. Again none I would call an emergency.

    The app works very well and looks clean and shows the information clearly, with ability to have notifications near you and for set locations. I like the idea of users being able to add observations. I tested this out with the current weather we have but added it twice and was wondering if the ability for the person who created it to modify/remove observations. 4 1/2 Stars for functionality, noti

    Very useful from the pov of a media professional. Radio stations are incorrect which could be a serious problem for those who rely on the app.

    I have found this to be very useful. I am able to keep an eye on areas where my family live and get updates for their locations. I do think that the constant fire ban notifications get a bit much when it is repeating the same notification over and over.
