Most of us have smartphones, and with that comes a built in safety feature you may not have been aware of.  Emergency alerts can be automatically sent to your phone.  If you have this feature on, you could be aware of severe weather heading to your location.

The National Weather Service recently went to social media in hopes to get more people to turn on their wireless emergency alerts.



You can find more information on how the wireless alerts work by visiting the website.
