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, and Tulsa.

* Watch live video streams when available (usually during local coverage of severe weather in Scripps TV markets, listed below. Due to compatibility issues in older version of the Android OS, Live Video is only available for Android 4.0 and above.)

* 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 is designed to make a negligible impact on your battery.

* 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.

    Alerts are no longer being sent on my Nexus 5; however on my Nexus 10 I get them. Fix it. I paid for this app and it should work. Get it right.

    New app to me. Just installed and hope it updates on it's own. My settings are for it to do so.

    This is supposed to work like a weather radio but it appears to only alert on warnings when I am looking at the app. It should allow alerts at all times, no matter what my phone volume is set to.
