Weather Text Alerts

Posted: 03/08/2013 - The National Weather Service in Pueblo urges people who have mobile devices capable of receiving Weather Emergency Alert (WEA) messages to keep that feature ENABLED. If you didn't get the message this morning, it could be that your alerts are disabled - or it could be your carrier. Wireless carriers that support the service include AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Sprint Nextel, T-Mobile, Bluegrass Cellular, Cellcom, and U.S. Cellular. Check with individual carriers for coverage, as some do not offer nationwide service. Important emergency weather messages will be automatically delivered to your mobile device, including Tornado Warnings and Flash Flood Warnings. With the high Flash Flood risk from the Waldo Canyon burn scar, receiving Flash Flood Warnings in a timely manner will be vital to the citizens of, and visitors to the Colorado Springs area this spring and summer. If you still want to disable these alerts, and you have an iPhone, go to settings, then notifications and scroll down to Government Alerts. From there you can turn off emergency alerts. If you have an Android phone, launch your messenger app and then go to settings. You can scroll down to CMAS alerts and disable them there. On any phone you can also disable your GPS location services - which will also stop the alerts since they are location-based.
