Text, Email, and Phone Alerts
Get severe weather-related alerts sent to your email, cell phone, pager, wireless PDA, or home phone! I've only got a few items listed thus far, but the Weather.com site listed below will cover any state. Also check your local television station's web site for free text alerts as many stations offer the service now.

Be aware that while many of the text message services from the below sources are free to sign up for, text and data fees may be charged by your cell phone company, depending upon your service plan.

On a personal note, I have been signed up for free severe weather text alerts from our local TV station, free severe weather emails from The Weather Channel (Weather.com), AND the paid severe weather warnings telephone service called "Notify!" from The Weather Channel for some time, and all the services work well. Of course, the phone and text message alerts are the most useful in the middle of the night when severe weather occurs or anytime one isn't at the computer, but emails are nice to have, also! And don't forget the old standby... purchase and use a NOAA emergency weather alert radio!

Please note that I have listed only a VERY small sampling of some services available across the country here. The best thing for you to do is to check out the website(s) of your local news station(s) and/or The Weather Channel's web site to find the service most local/appropriate for you. If you notice any broken links or changed information, please contact me to let me know.



Free and Paid Text, Phone, Email, and Other Alerts for Your Area

Weather Channel

Free Text Alerts or Email Alerts for Your Area
You can select to receive free email alerts, mobile alerts, or both. Note that messaging rates may apply from your cell phone company, depending upon your data plan (e.g., if you pay per text message sent or received).

Phone Alerts for Your Area - Via Notify! by The Weather Channel
Get severe weather warnings via your home telephone. This service offers a one-week free trial. After that, a small monthly fee will apply, or you can purchase a year's worth of service for a discounted rate, currently for 50% off. You'll hear the voice of The Weather Channel's Jim Cantore via a recorded notification service letting you know "This is a severe weather warning from Notify!" It will then list the specific severe weather warning for your area. The call goes out as soon as the warning is issued.



Below are some local areas (and I will be adding many more) which also offer severe weather text or email alerts. For the most part they will replicate The Weather Channel's information, and you should be able to find your area listed in The Weather Channel's alerts areas; however, you may wish to sign up for both for any number of reasons.
