NEWIS: NOAA Extreme Weather Information

By National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


This is the App of the popular NOAA Extreme Weather Information Sheet (NEWIS). NEWIS is designed to be a "one stop" reference with links to national, state, and local websites and phone numbers that coastal residents can use before, during, and after weather emergencies.

The goal of NEWIS is to help citizens increase their weather readiness as a part of NOAA's Weather-Ready Nation initiative. NOAA encourages citizens to make a plan for extreme weather, to stay informed by listening to the official weather forecast from NOAA's National Hurricane Center or local NOAA Weather Forecast Office, and to follow the direction of local emergency managers and law enforcement in the event of a life threatening situation.

NEWIS was developed by NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information, a division of NOAA's National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service.

Not bad what it does

This app is for those coastal states and territories that may be affected with severe weather. It does not seem too focused on tornadoes or natural disasters like earthquakes.

However, since I live in a coastal state, I downloaded it to see what it was about. From this app I can get all kinds of National Weather Service information, NOAA (including climate and environmental information), and more. There is a tab to find information for the covered states. Here is information, including links and phone numbers, about the state and local agencies plus power companies and other contact information for use before, during and after a severe weather event. This is based on their "paper" information sheets that are really useful sources of information.

It is not perfect- there is no "help" tab and some of the links, even for a NOAA site are not correct.

There does not seem to be much that is resident in the app, so not sure how good it will perform in the middle of a real emergency without Internet access (there is a link to the actual PDFs info sheets so you can keep a hard copy handy) but a good start for a free app from Uncle Sam.

Not a national app

This app doesn't include information for inland states, the pacific coast, Alaska, Hawaii, or any of the Atlantic coast states north of North Carolina.
