WHAT’S UP NEXT:  Working on fixes for:

Storm Shield - Version 4.0 

- (Released January 2018)


Storm Shield has been updated for Android 8 and beyond. With this major update comes new map layers, new features and a sleek new design.

 

Severe weather alerts for your exact location. Storm Shield Weather Radio gives you storm-based alerts for tornado, hurricane, flood, thunderstorm, winter storms and other life-threatening weather events via voice and push notification.

 

Storm-based or polygon alerts help reduce false alarms from county-based alerts by alerting you to severe weather based on your exact location within a county. Why is that important? Because county-based alerts can give you false alarms, warning you even if your location in the county is not within the threatened area.

 

 

Benefits include:

• Get NOAA alerts just like a NOAA weather radio via voice and push notification no matter where you are in the United States.

• Share severe weather alerts with your family and friends to make sure they stay safe.

• Beautifully sharp radar map as your home screen so you can immediately see what's going on at your current and saved locations.

• View current conditions, hourly and daily forecasts.

• Save additional locations to make sure friends and family at home, work, or out of state stay safe.

• Watch live video streams when available (usually during local coverage of severe weather in most cities listed below).

• New hi-definition radar provides stunning precipitation detail. See freezing rain (pink) areas of radar so you know where hazardois road conditions are likely.

• Tap any storm alert polygon on the map to view info about that weather alert.

• New weather overlay called 'Snow Cover' that shows you snow accumulation across the United States.

• School Closings for Baltimore, Buffalo, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, Detroit, Green Bay, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Lansing-Jackson, Milwaukee, Nashville, Omaha and Tulsa.
