A Great Graduation Gift!

Congrats To The Graduates! This is an exciting time of year for many - high school graduation. A teenager transitions to a young adult marking the end of one era and the beginning of another. Festive ceremonies are followed by parties and plans for the fall. The future seems bright for many and there's usually a mix of emotions. Some will leave home for the first time to attend college. In some cases, they will attend college in a place where the weather is dramatically different from what they're accustomed. If you know a graduate, give them and their family ...

BEFORE The Siren

This is the time of year when the day can start out with sunshine, but quickly, skies grow dark in the late afternoon. It's a common this time of year, especially in the central U.S. The rumble of thunder and crackle of lightning might be more than just a disruption to an outdoor activity - it could portend serious danger. When it comes to taking safety action when storms are near, the first step is having an awareness of the threat. Some rely on their local news station, others trust a weather radio or the outdoor siren. There are pros ...

Who’s Number 1?

You may not realize it, but as of this writing, Georgia leads the U.S. in 2017 with 104 tornadoes! Typically, the Peach State only averages about 26 per year. In fact, the pace of twisters this Spring is the fastest in decades. Did you know that so far, there have been over 100 tornadoes in each month this year, nationwide? Recently, some of those storms threats caused undue panic in metro Atlanta, but not for customers of our business service, WeatherCall Enterprise. On April 5, the National Weather Service issued a tornado warning indicated by the red box. The box is located ...

A Grateful Attitude

We all have a lot for which to be Thankful this season. Hopefully, you'll be able to spend time with friends, family and of course, enjoy some good food. While many in the southeast would like rain, no one wants to see destructive storms. But when the rumbling starts, one WeatherCall client is grateful to be getting the information he needs that ultimately saves his company money. Doug, a plant manager in Athens, Georgia, was introduced to WeatherCall's lightning notification last year and gladly renewed (which made me grateful). He depends on timely lightning notifications to let him know if ...

“This storm will kill you!”

That was the dire warning Florida governor Rick Scott gave today in advance of the dangerous and deadly category four Hurricane Matthew's arrival to his state tomorrow. Currently, the storm is packing 145 mph winds with gusts up to 165 mph. Hopefully, people will heed the evacuation orders and take the threat seriously. This isn't hype, it's real and the things the Governor said are meant to scare the complacent into action. Those moving inland need to be aware of the often overlooked feature of land-falling hurricanes: tornadoes. Often, small, but powerful twisters develop in the spiraling outer bands of ...

WeatherCall Success Story During Hermine

One hundred and ninety miles away from the center of Hurricane Hermine's Florida landfall, a tornado warning was issued just outside of Savannah, Georgia. That's where over one hundred residents of an assisted living community waited out the storm. WeatherCall service had just been installed there and it performed flawlessly. In an emergency situation, like a tornado, staff had been instructed to move all residents to a designated safe area in the building. No easy task when so many in your care have awareness, mobility and health issues. Certainly more challenging to pull off at 3:30 am! However, they didn't ...

Here is the track as of Wednesday afternoon for this storm from the National Hurricane Center: Keep in mind that tropical storms and hurricanes often spawn isolated tornadoes inland, either before, during ...

Know A Senior Living Alone?

Hearing the roar of thunder when you live alone, perhaps with health, awareness or mobility issues, can be frightening. It may just be a passing storm, or it could be something worse. If you have an aging relative living alone, wouldn’t you want to know if they were in possible danger? Consider getting a WeatherCall @Home subscription for them. Enter your loved one’s address, and contact number for them and up to two other family members. Those other numbers can be family members who live elsewhere, perhaps in a different state. WeatherCall works anywhere in the U.S. If the senior’s ...
