No warning anymore When I first got this app it worked great. For some reason it doesn't warn me anymore, not one little peep. I got this app to wake me if we had a tornado warning in the middle of the night so I could get my kids to safety and now it makes no noise at all.

Was great until it stopped working This hasn't worked for the past few weeks. It won't track my location or show any alerts for my area. I can force it to see my area, but it still doesn't show any alerts here, even though there are several right now. :( It was a great app when it worked.
