With the unpredictable weather condition that we are experiencing right now, it is definitely a good idea to have weather alerts or notices so that you can prepare to what weather you will have for that hour or for that day. And guess what, you don’t need to go to your computers anymore in order for you to have weather forecasts because by the use of your smartphones, you can already become updated with the weather alerts just near you.
In the most recent news, it was announced that millions of smartphone users will soon begin to receive text messages about the severe weather from a sophisticated government system that can send a blanket warning to mobile devices in the path of a dangerous storm.
They are really brilliant to think about this newest feature on your smartphone because this is definitely a big help, especially to those who go to work and attend school. In this regard, The National Weather Services’ new Wireless Emergency Alerts system offers a new way to warn Americans about menacing weather, even if they are nowhere near a television, radio, the internet or storm sirens. Isn’t it great to hear such news?
Starting this Thursday, the system will notify people about approaching tornadoes, hurricanes, blizzards and other threats. When a warning is issued for a specific country, a message of no more than 90 charatcers will cause late-model smartphones in that area to sound a special tone and vibrate. This is going to be fantastic! We just hope it will be realized.
