BLOG: The One 'Shield' that Could Save Your Life

Weather app now a proven life saver...

The weather app you've seen us talk about on ABC 2 News so often has been living up to its name and even beyond.

Gone are the days when you needed a NOAA weather radio to awaken you from a long night's sleep when storms roll in.  You can get a loud alert via Storm Shield right off your iPhone or Droid that can wake you up when a severe storm is approaching.  (And the good news is, if you're like most of us, you already sleep next to your phone)!

This app has already been doing an amazing job proving it can save both lives and property, and if you don't believe me, just take a look at a small sample of the reviews that are being posted in both the iTunes store (more here ) and Google Play store (more here ) (I pasted in several of them below).

Then after you read the comments below, if you haven't already downloaded Storm Shield yet and are still on the fence for some reason, simply ask yourself, "how else could just 5 bucks possibly save my life?"


"I just wanted to let you know that your storm app just alerted our family of the Broken Arrow, OK tornado, faster than the TV and tornado sirens. Thankfully our house was not in the path but it was CLOSE! Thank you!!!"

"Saved me from my deductible! This app saved me $495! I was asleep a couple of nights ago with my car parked in front of my house. I got a notification about a storm coming my way with possible hail and was able to get my car in the garage before it it. My neighbor's car had significant hail damage, mine was safe thanks to this app. Totally worth the price!"

Last night the weather had me slightly awake, but my phone woke me up around 11:45 to tell me about the Severe Thunderstorm Warning for my area. About a minute later was the Tornado Warning for the area. Scary, the sirens then started going off. I love this app because it finds your location. That was my problem about other weather alerts, they tell you about your home. I could be in Aurora with my sister shopping; I need to know what is happening around there NOT at my home. GREAT APP! Someone did what was needed, well worth the small price of it!
