KBMT is pleased to bring a state-of-the art, personal
storm warning service to the Beaumont-Port Arthur area.
Recent improvements in how the National Weather Service defines warning areas have resulted in significantly higher accuracy and smaller warned areas, compared to the decades-old county-wide warning method.
The WeatherCall™ system continuously monitors the National Weather Service's NOAA weatherwire. Using computerized mapping (GIS) the system compares a subscriber's specific location to the location of the warning area. When a severe weather warning includes your location, you will receive a phone call from Chief Meteorologist, Patrick Vaughn, 24 hours a day. You can also receive the warning by email with a detailed map of the threat or by SMS text messaging.
Jefferson County's 904 sq. miles are under a TORNADO WARNING.
The actual warning area is 136 square miles. Only WeatherCall subscribers INSIDE the red box would receive the warning call.
WeatherCall is a subscription-based service that costs $9.95 dollars per year. When you register, the system attempts to assign a precise latitude and longitude value to your location. If you enter a street address the system recognizes, your service BEGINS IMMEDIATELY. If there is a problem determining your location (for instance, a new housing development), there are easy steps to follow for you to locate yourself in the system.
