NewsWest 9 is pleased to bring a state-of-the art, personal
storm warning service to the Midland - Odessa area.
Recent improvements in how the National Weather Service defines warning areas have resulted in significantly higher accuracy and smaller warned areas, compared to the decades-old county-wide warning method.
The WeatherCall® system continuously monitors the National Weather Service's NOAA weatherwire. 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 Chief Meteorologist, Tom Tefertiller, 24 hours a day. You can also receive the warning by email with a detailed map of the threat or by SMS text messaging.
Howard and Mitchell County's combined 1,813 sq. miles are under a TORNADO WARNING. The actual warning area is 199 square miles.
Only WeatherCall subscribers INSIDE the red box would receive the warning call.
