With weather changing quickly at times it can be a challenge keeping track of the latest watches, warnings, forecasts and snow totals.
Check out the Fox 47 News smartphone app, Storm Shield, to help monitor all weather conditions!
You can set up to three different locations and set to get notified when weather is changing. That way, you can customize how often you'll get alerts!
For all kinds of weather alerts ranging from winter snow to severe weather, tropical storms and more, the Storm Shield app provides life-saving weather alerts for your exact location and up to five additional saved locations.
As soon as an advisory, watch or warning of any kind is issued, the app sounds off with three loud beeps that's sure to get your attention no matter what you're doing at the time, giving you and your family time to seek shelter and prepare for any dangerous weather headed your way.
And for anyone without a smartphone, Storm Shield Phone Call Alerts is available to give you a call when a tornado or severe thunderstorm is coming your way.
