Good info but too many alerts
I think overall the app is fine and provides valuable information. However, I am currently receiving alerts every few minutes for my area. Today it's high winds and fire alerts, literally every five minutes. Yesterday it was beach and wind alerts all day long. I've already gotten 3 alerts in the time it's taken me to write this review out.
I know I can turn notifications off, but I do want to know when there are warnings. I guess I'm going to have to just turn it off and hope I notice the badge alerts instead, because this is maddening.
Useful, but too many alerts at times
This app is very useful and welcome, but sometimes there are so many alerts and notifications that it becomes tedious. For example, today we have high winds and high fire danger in our area, and the app sent out almost a dozen notifications in less than an hour of both of these dangers - some of them duplicated multiple times. I still value the information, but I wish it was a little better written and fleshed out.
Have you thought of having the app's alert badge disappear after the alert has expired? The badges linger forever.
