WeatherCall 5 for your HOME – A service that delivers precision severe storm warnings to your telephone, 24 hours a day!
WeatherCall for your HOME is a subscription-based service that registers your home or small business’s location in our database, and constantly monitors that address for severe weather warnings issued by the National Weather Service which include this location. You may register up to 3 telephone numbers for each address, and ANY TYPE of phone can be called.
WeatherCall for your HOME costs $9.95 dollars per year per address. When you register, the system attempts to assign a precise latitude and longitude value to your location. If you enter a street address the system recognizes, your service BEGINS IMMEDIATELY. If there is a problem determining your location (for instance, a new housing development), there are easy steps to follow for you to locate yourself in the system.
WeatherCall for your HOME is the ONLY service of its type which VERIFIES that a user’s location is correct and precise. Because it is so accurate, any error in the map location process can mean the difference in receiving a warning notification or not.
WeatherCall for your HOME is the ONLY service which calls your phone(s) AS MANY TIMES AS NECESSARY as a storm moves through the area. WeatherCall will notify you multiple times if changes or adjustments to the warning are made by the National Weather Service, guaranteeing you will have the most accurate and up-to-date notifications possible.
Many counties in the KHAS viewing area are a thousand square miles or larger. Dangerous storms are often less than 200 square miles. In the past, severe weather warnings were issued for entire counties creating uncertainty as to exactly where the threat really is. The National Weather Service now uses a new and much more precise method to define a warning area called STORM-BASED WARNINGS that reduces the size of a warning area by an average of 75%.
WeatherCall combines this new method to determine a warning area with robust emergency telephone notification. Using computerized mapping, WeatherCall matches the danger area defined by the National Weather Service with your address. If your address is within the danger area of the weather warning, Chief Meteorologist, John Walsh will deliver the warning message to the phone numbers you register, and also send you an email if you provide one.
