Sign up for Ohio WX App for Complete Weather Alerts
When a storm is underway, social media may not be the most reliable source of weather alerts.
Twitter users would have to constantly monitor the stream of posts to prevent missing anything, and Facebook limits the number of posts that show up in a user's newsfeed.
For example, ABC 6's Facebook page has 100,000 followers. Of these, only 35,000 users -- about one out of three -- saw the Sunday post about a tornado warning in Franklin County.
ABC 6/Fox 28's own Ohio WX app will automatically send notifications to all 42,000 current users. It will also only send alerts for the county in which the user is currently located.
Smart phone users can also sign up for mobile text alerts at http://sbgweb.immktg.com/WSYX/alerts.
