Note that all RadioReference streams have an unavoidable delay, due to buffering, of approximately 50+secs from live transmission to the internet stream. If you hear a report of severe weather approaching your vicinity, please note the information you're hearing is likely one minute or more old, which could be a significant delay during a severe weather event.
This public safety scanner feed was created for the purpose of informing the public in extreme emergency situations.

Steps to Becoming A Skywarn Spotter: The National Weather Service encourages anyone with an interest in public service and access to communication, such as amateur radio, to participate as a Skywarn storm spotter. Volunteers include police and fire personnel, dispatchers, EMS workers, public utility workers and other concerned private citizens. Individuals affiliated with hospitals, schools, churches, nursing homes or who have a responsibility for protecting others are also encouraged to become a spotter. https://www.weather.gov/skywarn/
"How are you leveraging today’s robust mobile technology to receive time-sensitive communications during emergencies? With the CodeRED Mobile Alert app – the nation’s most downloaded public safety notification app – OnSolve enables subscribers to receive these notifications directly to their mobile device whether at home, on the road, or traveling around the country.
These mobile push notifications deliver relevant, location-based alerts based on GPS location to ensure you receive critical information when you are in a CodeRED client’s jurisdiction."
"weatherUSA Alerts is a real-time weather alert service that sends out weather warnings, watches, tropical alerts, and other advisories as soon as they are issued by federal agencies including the National Weather Service. Alerts are sent to subscribers in the warned areas to a mobile device via text messages (SMS) or by e-mail. Premium users can also receive alerts via voice (phone) call."

We use Scanners, Software Defined Radios and portable Radios to provide incidents as it happens (We post only information we receive over the air on the radio, scanner, etc we go on the same information that we post). We will do our best to keep everyone up to date as possible as we receive the information through comments or individual posts.

Below is detailed information about the systems I monitor.

Depending on Atmospheric Conditions the quality on the radio transmission will vary. Unlike HF Propagation that bounces off the Ionosphere VHF, and UFH Radiate's out into space.
Tropospheric-Ducting, propagation occurs when signals are reflected scattered or refracted in the troposphere. "Ducting" effects occur primarily because of temperature inversions at a height of between 500m and 1500m, and occasionally up to 3000m.
Warm-Air Inversion, The boundary layer is the part of the atmosphere which is closest to the ground. ... An inversion occurs when the normal temperature (warm air below, cold air above) profile is reversed, creating a stable configuration of dense, cold air sitting below lighter, warm air.
Knife-Edge, In electromagnetic wave propagation, the knife-edge effect or edge diffraction is a redirection by diffraction of a portion of the incident radiation that strikes a well-defined obstacle such as a mountain range or the edge of a building.
Sporadic E or Es is an unusual form of radio propagation using characteristics of the Earth's ionosphere. Whereas most forms of skywave propagation use the normal and cyclic ionization properties of the ionosphere's F region to refract (or "bend") radio signals back toward the Earth's surface, sporadic E propagation bounces signals off smaller "clouds" of unusually ionized atmospheric gas in the lower E region (located at altitudes of approx. 90 to 160 km). This occasionally allows for long-distance communication at VHF frequencies not usually well-suited to such communication.

American Electric Power, Operates on an EDACS 800 MHz Trunked System. All sounding locations are monitored but not set as a priority.
Citizens band radio (also known as CB radio) Channel 9 is restricted by the FCC to only emergency communications and roadside assistance. Most highway travelers monitor channel 19. CB radio is still used by truck drivers, and remains an effective means of obtaining information about road construction, accidents, and police speed traps. Although I don't live next to a busy highway, both of these are on a Priority monitored Frequency.
