Perryville resident protects friends & family outside the range of Tornado Sirens

"We've had 2 tornadoes near Perryville in the last 3-4 years that have impacted many people we've known.  This includes killing 2 people that my wife and I both worked with for many years....  [in another situation] the grandmother of a friend of mine was living in a town that I could see was in the path of a tornado I was tracking in the Weather Defender (confirmed by Local Storm Reports).  She lived in a trailer and was not in an area where sirens were sounded or could be heard.  I called my friend and told her that a tornado was headed for the area in which her grandmother lived and she called her grandmother.  She was able to get out of the trailer and to a safer location.  Fortunately,  the tornado was not on the ground long enough to get to her place, but my call was 15-20 minutes before it would've gotten there.   Fifteen to twenty minutes may not sound like much, but it can mean the difference between life and death when a tornado is in the area.  They were very grateful for my call.

Family, police officer protected by advance warnings in Weather Defender

by Rory Groves        November 10, 2009  |  4:05 pm  |  Category: Testimonials

"My son is a cop and was on patrol one night when a severe thunderstorm approached our community. I used Weather Defender to track the movement of the storm and communicated with my son to watch out because the storm was about to hit his location. He told me later that within 5 minutes of my call a storm hit so hard that it almost flipped the squad car over. I have used Weather Defender on many other occasions to keep tabs on severe weather and help protect people I know and care about."
