Short (3 minute) video describes this new function (best to watch in full screen or on YouTube)
While the Watch & Warning alerting function described on a separate page will notify users of severe weather watches & warnings... we also now have the ability to alert you of observed storm reports (i.e. reported on the ground). Similar to the watch/warning function, alerts may be sent out via email to any set of locations and can have their triggers controlled by weather type and distance. The storm reports available are extensive including 31 different type of events.
See some examples of the types of alert messages/emails below (scroll all the way to the bottom of the page).
