The WRAL Weather Alert app uses your phone's GPS to track your location and alert you when you are in the path of severe weather. There's no need to enter your home or work address. Just keep your phone turned on and nearby.
Greg Fishel will deliver details about the threat facing you, no matter where you go in United States. To download the app, visit the Apple iTunes store OR visit the Google Play store for the Android app. Read our FAQs.
Most services will alert you to severe weather if you are in a county only partially covered by a watch or warning, even if you are not actually directly within the watch/warning. This app ensures you receive an alert only if your device or saved locations fall inside a watch/warning box. That means you aren’t disturbed by alarms not relevant to your location.
You also have complete control over what types of alerts you receive through your app. Pick just the type of alerts you want from a list. For example, select only tornado warnings or just winter weather warnings.
