No need to bump the thread, and in fact bumping is a violation of the AirForums Community Rules. But I won't tell the mods if you don't.

The reason there's no need is that folks in the area should already be using a National Weather Service or American Red Cross app, NOAA weather radio, local broadcast media, or similar emergency notification system to get updates on local conditions. Folks affected by disaster conditions are hardly likely to turn to AirForums for breaking news on the disaster.

Personally I'm partial to the American Red Cross (ARC) suite of apps on my phone— hurricane, tornado, flood, earthquake, wildfire— and always allow them to track my current position to push notices to me for my local area. Came in real handy at the WBCCI International Rally in Lewisburg when they had a tornado warning as well as later repeated flash-flooding incidents every couple of days. ARC beat out the local civil defense notices about half the time, too; the status updates are instant!

Kudos to the National Weather Service for getting on Facebook, though.

Woulda, shoulda, coulda. Not everyone is so prepared.

Do you know what a learning experience is? A learning experience is one of those things that says "You know that thing that you just did? Don't do that."
