  1. What are WEA messages?
    Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) are emergency messages sent by authorized government alerting authorities through your mobile carrier. Government partners include local and state public safety agencies, FEMA, the FCC, the Department of Homeland Security, and the National Weather Service. No signup is required! Alerts are sent automatically to WEA-capable phones during an emergency.
  2. Why is this important to me?
    Alerts received at the right time can help keep you safe during an emergency. With WEA, alerts can be sent to your mobile device when you may be in harm's way, without need to download an app or subscribe to a service.
  3. What types of alerts will I receive?
    • Extreme Weather and Hydrologic Warnings
    • Local emergencies requiring evacuation or immediate action
    • AMBER Alerts
    • Blue Alerts
    • Presidential Alerts during a national emergency
  4. What does a WEA message look like?
    WEA will look like a text message. The WEA message will typically show the type and time of the alert, any action you should take, and the agency issuing the alert. The length and language of the message received on a particular device will be dependent on the wireless network and the language setting of the device. Messages will be up to 360 characters on 4G LTE networks and beyond. WEA message length will be a maximum of 90 characters on 3G and earlier networks. Please see the current NWS WEA messages in English and Spanish.

  5. How will I know the difference between WEA and a regular text message?
    WEA messages include a special tone and vibration, both repeated twice.
  6. What types of WEA messages will the National Weather Service send?
    Tsunami Warnings (see Fact Sheet)
    Tornado and Flash Flood Warnings
    Hurricane, Typhoon, Storm Surge, and Extreme Wind Warnings
    Dust Storm and Snow Squall Warnings
  7. What should I do when I receive a WEA message?
    Follow any action advised by the emergency message. Seek more details from your favorite TV or radio station, NOAA Weather Radio, news website, desktop application, mobile application, or other trusted source of information.
