Severe weather alerts

Phone enabled for severe weather alerts, amber, etc. Just had a tornado pass by a few miles from my home, and my phone is all crickets.

I have no cell coverage inside my home, so I rely exclusively on WiFi.


Wireless Emergency Alerts are sent over cellular towers. If you need something that will work over Wi-Fi I would suggest something like the Emergency app from the American Red Cross:

Or the FEMA app (which I forgot I was actually using until I got a weather alert today):


Additionally, the alerts over the cell you receive would be over the same carrier that you would use for 911 and not necessarily TM/Sprint that RW uses.
