Introducing 11 News WeatherCall -- a new service that delivers precision severe storm warnings to your telephone, 24 hours a day.

Many counties in the 11 News viewing area are several hundred square miles, but dangerous storms are often less than 100 square miles. Unfortunately, severe weather warnings are often issued for entire counties, creating uncertainty as to whether or not your area is really in the storm zone.

To remedy this, 11 News WeatherCall combines new technology from the National Weather Service with robust emergency telephone notification to reduce the storm warning area by 75 percent.

Using computerized mapping, 11 News WeatherCall will match the danger area defined by the National Weather Service with your exact street address. If your address is within the danger area of the weather warning, Chief Meteorologist Gene Norman will deliver the warning message to the phone numbers you register, and also send you an e-mail if you provide an address.
