Real Time Alerts – 95% Accuracy
Current technology can tell you that there’s a twister in the vicinity. However, rapid changes in the tornado’s position are not reported in real time. Moving at 60 mph, that tornado may now be 20 miles closer to you and your family – giving you less time to respond. Current warnings are only 25% accurate so many people ignore them. But now with tornadoAlert you can have a severe weather alarm in your own home that accurately identifies when a tornado is coming towards you. In real time.
