Tornadoes and WEA wireless emergency alerts

Lots of tornadoes in MA this year (compared to the roughly 0-1 average noted at the NOAA page) so WEA is coming in handy, if you have a smartphone handy.

http://www.fema.gov/wireless-emergency-alerts (our non smartphone doesn’t support them… seriously considering getting an unlocked moto-g (GSM) and lycamobile sim card ($0 a month prepay plan) that would just sit in the house waiting to alert. The alert came 4 minutes after the worcester tornado hit though.
