Yes, if you have a WEA-capable phone and your wireless carrier participates in the program. If you travel into a threat area after an alert is first sent, your WEA-capable device will receive the message when you enter the area. You can opt-out of receiving WEA messages for imminent threats and AMBER alerts, but not for Presidential messages. With a unique sound and vibration, Wireless Emergency Alerts keep you in the know, wherever you are.

The Extreme alerts from the National Weather Service include warnings for tsunamis, tornadoes, extreme winds, hurricanes and typhoons.


FEMA has produced Public Service Announcements that demonstrate how wireless alerts save lives. The NWS pushes our suite of warnings, advisories, and watches to a national collection pointcalled the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) The NWS specially marks our most critical NWS alerts for WEA distribution, so that when they reach IPAWS, they are pushed to commercial wireless carriers who broadcast the alert from cell towers in the threat area to your cell phone. While it's a little later than expected, the free SMS emergency notification system has now gone live. Government partners include local and state public safety agencies, FEMA, the FCC, the Department of Homeland Security, and the National Weather Service.

WEA use radio technology to broadcast the alert from cell towers to mobile devices in the area of the threat. The Severe alerts from National Weather Service include warnings for flash floods and dust storms. Therefore, an alert can reach cell phones outside of the actual warning area depending on the broadcast range of the cell towers which broadcast the alert.


Other sources include NOAA Weather Radio, news media coverage, the Emergency Alert System on radio and TV broadcasts, desktop applications, mobile applications, and other alerting methods offered by local and state public safety agencies. IPAWS also serves as collection point for non-weather alerts, such as civil and child abduction emergency messages which are issued by other emergency authorities.
Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) messages will be delivered to cell towers in affected areas, which will then broadcast them to all compatible devices in their range. America’s wireless industry is helping to build a Weather-Ready Nation through a nationwide text emergency alert system, called Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA), which will warn you when weather threatens.
While the system is looking to cover over 97 percent of the country, it's being gradually rolled out across carriers.
Sprint and Verizon are both apparently ready for action and while we haven't heard about the status of T-Mobile or AT&T, the National Weather Service has stated that hundreds of smaller carriers haven't yet enabled the broadcasts. However, not all phones -- especially the more elderly bricks still in circulation -- will work with the system.
