WeatherCall at Home

WeatherCall for your HOME is a subscription-based service that registers your home's or small business' location in our database and constantly monitors that address for severe weather warnings issued by the National Weather Service which include this location.  You may register up to three (3) telephone numbers for each address and ANY TYPE of phone can be called.

WeatherCall for your HOME costs $9.95 dollars per year, per address.  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. 

WeatherCall for your HOME is the ONLY service of its type which VERIFIES that a user's location is correct and precise.  Because it is so accurate, any error in the map location process can mean the difference in receiving a warning notification or not. 

WeatherCall for your HOME is the ONLY service which calls your phone(s) AS MANY TIMES AS NECESSARY as a storm moves through the area.  WeatherCall will notify you multiple times if changes or adjustments to the warning are made by the National Weather Service, guaranteeing you will have the most accurate and up-to-date notifications possible. 

Important things to know if you choose to subscribe to the service:

  • You must provide a PHYSICAL locationPO boxes, Mail Stops, Rural Routes, etc. cannot be located in the system.  If you do not know your physical address, you can follow the steps provided and attempt to accurately locate yourself.  You can also contact your local US Post Office or parish clerk's office, e-mail the WeatherCall Customer Care team for help (info@weathercall.net), or call 1-800-260-6695 and leave a message with your phone number and best time to reach you.  A Customer Care representative will return your call within 24 hours during regular business days to assist you.
