Using text alerts for dangerous weather is a great way to stay informed and keep yourself safe during severe weather conditions.
Here are some steps to set up text alerts for dangerous weather:
Find a reliable source for weather alerts: Identify a reliable source of weather alerts such as the National Weather Service (NWS) or a local news station.
Sign up for text alerts: Visit the website of the chosen weather alert provider and sign up for their text alert service. Follow the prompts to provide your contact information, including your phone number.
Specify the types of alerts you want to receive: Specify the types of alerts you want to receive, such as severe thunderstorm warnings, tornado warnings, or flash flood warnings.
Check the frequency of alerts: Check the frequency of alerts to ensure that you receive them as often as necessary. Some providers may send alerts only during business hours, while others may send alerts 24/7.
Prepare an emergency kit: Finally, it is important to prepare an emergency kit that includes items such as a flashlight, a first aid kit, water, and non-perishable food in case of power outages or other emergencies.
Remember to stay alert and follow safety procedures during severe weather conditions, such as seeking shelter immediately if a tornado warning is issued for your area.
