During a severe weather event, many normal activities take a back seat, as storm debris, downed power lines, and heavy rain/hail affect public and private infrastructures.

Install the advanced StormTRACK 8 app on your mobile device (to install or update the weather app, text WEATHERAPP to 52488 - msg&data rates may apply - or search KAIT in your mobile marketplace)
