Nation wide storm chasers

nation wide storm chasers

Great app to have I’ve yet to have problems, I’m a storm chaser/ over the road truck driver so it’s helpful I highly recommend it, it also helps me with alerts so I can put them on my Facebook page witch is called nation wide storm chasers



Have yet to actually put this through it’s paces in regards to how fast and accurate the notifications are but will update once we move to tornado alley next month. Everything else works great!

Better than Storm


Alerted us in TX to tornado last week, 10 minutes before the Storm app. Lots of updates and good peace of mind knowing the exact location of the threat.
