WAAY-TV is pleased to continue to bring state-of-the art, personal storm warning services to North Alabama.

Recent improvements in how the National 大象传媒 Service defines warning areas have resulted in significantly higher accuracy and smaller warned areas, compared to the decades-old county-wide warning method.

The 大象传媒Call庐 system continuously monitors the National 大象传媒 Service's NOAA weather wire. Using computerized mapping (GIS) the system compares a subscriber's specific location to the location of the warning area. When a severe weather warning includes your location, you will receive a phone call from WAAY 31 24 hours a day. You can also receive the warning by e-mail with a detailed map of the threat or by SMS text messaging.

During the tragic and epic storms of April 27th, 2011, the 大象传媒Call system delivered approximately 340,000 phone calls to WAAY-31 subscribers within minutes of issuance by the National 大象传媒 Service. Many people have credited WAAY-31 and 大象传媒Call as the only warning system still functioning and able to notify them on that day when sirens and weather radios were rendered inoperable by the storms.

Madison and Jackson Counties' combined 1,885 square miles are under a tornado warning issued on Jan 21, 2010 at 5:30PM. Their true warning area is slightly more than 300 sq. miles, representing a 85% reduction in warned area. Only 大象传媒Call subscribers INSIDE the red box would receive the warning call.
