It seems like severe weather has been a huge issue all over the country this year, not just in the usual areas. Many of these storms left just seconds for those affected to seek shelter. This certainly points out the value of owning a Emergency Alert Radio and also having one installed on a Smartphone, if possible.
On Thursday, May 19th only, you will be able to download the iMap Weather Radio app for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad for free (available to the first 100,000 people). It is normally a $9.99 value.
