weatherUSA Alerts is a real-time weather alert service that sends out weather warnings, watches, tropical alerts, and other advisories as soon as they are issued by federal agencies including the National Weather Service. Alerts are sent to subscribers in the warned areas to a mobile device via text messages (SMS) or by e-mail. Premium users can also receive alerts via voice (phone) call.

You can select warnings to receive based on county or state for local weather warnings; national advisories such as tropical storm and hurricane advisories are also available. For text messaging, you can even select a "quiet time" when you do not want to receive notifications. At the moment, our service provides alerts for any location in the United States.

NEW: We now offer support for pagers and paging devices, technical products for meteorologists and weather enthusiasts including Mesoscale Discussions and Public Weather Outlooks, and short-links in text messages that allow smartphone users to view the full text of an alert.
