Weather Service Offers Mobile Alerts

The National Weather Service has launched Wireless Emergency Alerts, or in other words a severe storm warning or an Amber Alert that goes straight to your smart phone. People may be away from a radio or TV station, but the smart phone is always handy, and the National Weather Service says the wireless alerts are a convenient way to get the word out about potential danger. The system uses cell towers to locate all mobile devices in the area, so you'll the alert if as long as you're in the area.
