Effective February 19, 2020, there was a national change to the Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) program that impacts what Flash Flood Warnings will be sent to cell phones.


To cut down on the number of alarms, Flash Flood Warnings will only trigger Wireless Emergency Alerts for "considerable" or "catastrophic" impacts.  Read more details at:  

This change is only for Wireless Emergency Alerts which are sent to cell phones.  All Flash Flood Warnings will still be sent over the Emergency Alert System (EAS) for broadcast on radio and TV and will continue to activate NOAA Weather Radio receivers.

If you want additional information sent to you about natural or man-made disasters, each county also offers free notification services.  Links to sign up are available here:
