How many times has the NWS issued a severe weather warning (thunderstorm, tornado, flash flood) and you found yourself scrambling to find out if it includes your campus or your house?
A new service from the National Weather Service -- "Interactive NWS" -- is changing that.
Now, you can register specify points by address. Or you can draw geographic polygons to include the location of your home, office or any physical site.
When the NWS issues a severe weather warning, if the warning polygon touches your point or polygon, you get a text message on your phone. If not, then no text message.
