Storm Shield

E.W. Scripps Company
Named by Time.com's @Techland as one of the best weather apps for your iPhone and Apple Watch.

Severe weather alerts for your exact location. Storm Shield gives you storm-based alerts for tornado, hurricane, flood, thunderstorm, winter storms and other life-threatening weather events via voice and push notification.

Storm-based alerts help reduce false alarms by alerting you to severe weather based on your exact location within a county. County-based alerts can result in false alarms, warning you when your location in the county is not within the threatened area.


What people are saying:
• Storm Shield "alerted our family of the Broken Arrow, OK tornado, faster than the TV and tornado sirens." - Robyn

• "I was in Oklahoma City during the tornado... we were right in its path. Your app literally was a life saver." - dcalk12

• Get voice alerts just like a NOAA weather radio via push notification anywhere in the United States.
• With Apple Watch, get a tap on your wrist when alerts are issued for your locations.
• Add Storm Shield's widget to your Today screen to get quick access to active alerts for the first location in your app.
• Touch Storm Shield's app icon on your 3D-Touch enabled iPhone for widget access.

BUG FIXES:

• We fixed a map rendering bug that caused the map pins to appear to move away from their fixed locations on the map as you zoomed the map out to a broader regional or national map view.

• We fixed a bug that caused the detailed storm information for an active hurricane or tropical storm to not display when you tapped one of the storm's past or forecasted plot points on the map.

• We fixed a bug that would intermittently cause the map view to default to Omaha, Nebraska when you launched the app.
