Hey folks. With the summer months coming up and severe weather following, I'd like to get an app that will sound off with an alarm when a tornado is close by..... just like the severe weather radios that you can buy. From what I've searched I think this one may work best but since we can't get a refund in the app store..... has anyone tried it? Opinions?
Thanks all.

I have the weather Channel app and it is good and updates often with severe weather warnings. Notifications works well with it.
It's free.

Best one, period.

We have a thread about it.

I'm another Weather Alert USA user, thanks BennyBoy for that tip ages ago.
It's a great app with multiple alert settings. Many times during hurricane season here in FL, it's going off just as the tv/radio alerts go off. Sometimes my phone notifies me first.
+11 for the app.

I like Weather Alert USA also , was great living in Lubbock with the severe weather they get but don't use it quite as much now in Abq

I almost always got the phone alert before our weather radio would go off
