If you came here looking for a way to give FEMA your phone number because of something you saw on the news, forget it. The news was wrong. The news, at least ABC, said the tornadoes of Jan.23rd took people by surprise and without warning. Also wrong. At least in and around Birmingham, Alabama we were aware of impending bad weather for a couple of days in advance, both on Jan.23rd AND April 27, 2011. Here are some of the ways we get severe weather info without relying on FEMA: NOAA weather radio, local radio, local tv, text message (usually a service provided by local radio and / or local tv), phone app, iPad or Android tablet app (The Weather Channel, for instance), local newspaper, conversation with fellow human beings ("Say, you heard anything about the weather?" "Yeah, they say it's supposed to get bad tonight." "Really? When?" "I heard around 11pm but they may have changed it. Might want to listen to the radio instead of your iPod to make sure."), and finally - as a course of last resort - looking out a window. To be sure, that last one only works in daylight and only out of windows actually facing any approaching storms. I've tried them all and they all work. <br />4-27-11 Survivor (missed my home by 100 yards)
