Alerts days later! Lately, the app gives warnings an hour to days after issued. I'm trying uninstalling and reloading, as attempts to "Contact Us" come back as undeliverable.

Unreliable!!! Severe thunderstorm warning came in exactly 24 hours later!!! Seriously, this app supposed to save lifes??? Used to work great, warnings arrived just before or same time as radio and tv broadcasts.....Fix it, before someone puts their life in danger depending on you. Shame, it should be banned from app store like this, and someone made responsible for it...

Annoying I visited Colorado once. Now, no matter how many times I reset the settings, I keep getting warnings for a state I don't live in. Had to uninstall to make it quit.
