Wireless Emergency Alerts coming to your cellphoneJune 11th, 2012 at 12:33 pm by Natalie Stoll under Weather
The Wireless Emergency Alert system is rolling out. It’s a combine effort from wireless carriers, FEMA and the FCC to get emergency information to cellphones based on location.
The National Weather Service will use the system starting this month to broadcast weather alerts. Here in Central Texas, that means you could get flash flood warnings and tornado warnings right to your cellphone based on what county you’re in (even if you’re just driving through).
