Storm Based Warnings

Tornado Warnings Then and Now

Severe Thunderstorm and Tornado Warnings are NOT issued based on entire counties. Instead, these warnings are issued based on polygon areas that are drawn by meteorologists at the NWS office. This allows better targeting of people in the actual threat area instead of warning people where a storm will not affect. Services such as CivicReady, use the storm based warning information to alert registered users if their address falls within a warning polygon. Some systems, such as the NOAA All Hazards Radio System, Cable TV, and some mobile apps, are still based on entire counties. By having a NOAA All Hazards radio, you can be notified if a warning is issued anywhere in the county then confirm your address is officially included in the warning by receiving a notification from CivicReady. This two source method provides redundancy and confirmation for severe weather warnings.
