NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE
The National Weather Service has weather warnings on the go! You're driving down the highway, humming along to your favorite tunes, when the cell phone stowed in your bag suddenly makes a strange noise. To investigate, you take the next exit and safely pull over to check the screen. Good thing you did: Your phone just alerted you to a thunderstorm a few miles away.

WIRELESS EMERGENCY ALERTS CAPABLE
Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) are emergency messages sent by authorized government alerting authorities through your mobile carrier. Government partners include local and state public safety agencies, FEMA, the FCC, the Department of Homeland Security, and the National Weather Service.

No signup is required! Alerts are sent automatically to WEA-capable phones during an emergency.
