Do you want a Tornado Warning only when your home, office, job site, or school is in the storm’s path?
Sign up for Storm Call - Exclusively from the WOWT Channel 6 Weather Authority
Like a smoke detector, we think every household should have an alert system for severe weather. That is why we are offering the Channel 6 Storm Call, a state-of-the art personal storm warning service, in the Omaha area.

A recent improvement in how the National Weather Service defines warning areas has 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 GIS computerized mapping, the system compares a subscriber's specific location to the location of the warning area.

When a severe weather warning includes your location at any time of the day or night, you will receive a phone call from Chief Meteorologist, Jim Flowers. You can also receive the warning by email with a detailed map of the threat area if you provide an email address when you register. You may also use any of the email address entries to set up the warning to be delivered by SMS text messaging.
The Channel 6 StormCall will alert you via phone, email, and text-message ONLY when your home, office, job site, school
or ANY other location across the Continental US you desire, is within an official National Weather Service Tornado Warning Area.

The radar image on the left was captured as a Tornado Warning was issued for Saunders, Dodge, Douglas, Washington, Harrison, and Pottawattamie Counties - a combined area of 3,640 square miles.

The image on the right represents the actual warning area - a total of 254 square miles.

Only StormCall subscribers who live inside that area, outlined by the shaded box, would receive the warning call.
