Alabama SAF-T-NetWHNT Alabama SAF-T-Net® is free to every resident of the State of Alabama. It is a fully automatic weather warning system that’s simple to use and more specific than an outdoor warning siren. This app allows you to input up to four places to be monitored for severe weather alerts, including your smart phone’s current location. WHNT Alabama SAF-T-Net will alert you through push notifications about impending weather danger. The WHNT Alabama SAF-T-Net® app is available on iTunes and Google Play. If you don’t have a smart phone, you can still sign up for the WHNT Alabama SAF-T-Net® email/text alert option.

Paid Weather App

This is an app we recommend, but WHNT News 19 does not provide.

The iMap Weather Radio App is $9.99 and will give you location-specific warnings via voice and push notification.  Your iPhone will “wake up” with alerts and also track your location to warn you wherever you go.  Enjoy the power of a NOAA Weather Radio, with all the convenience and precision of a smart phone.
