What it does:
WeatherHop provides customizable severe weather notifications to both business and consumers. The service provides notifications via voice, SMS, email, social, and API. The alerts are customizable by weather type (tornado, thunderstorm, flood, winter) and notification type.
It’s free to sign up for social alerts sent to your Facebook wall or Twitter feed. Paid plans start at $2.99/mo for alerts sent to your phone or email.
The service is built on top of other cloud-based providers such as Twilio and SendGrid to provide a fast, reliable, and scalable solution.
How it beats the competition:
The configuration of WeatherHop is by far the best of any service out there.
We also pinpoint your location to the latitude and longitude so you’re only alerted if you are in the path of severe weather. Other services base their notifications at the county level which leads to notifications when you don’t need them.
