Regroup’s integration with NOAA allows notifications to be sent from NOAA automatically to the group of your choice or end users who opt-in for this service.
National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is a USA National weather alert service that sends out weather alerts based on location. For more information, refer to this link http://alerts.weather.gov/.
Administrators of Regroup can enable NOAA Weather Alerts from the Group Settings page so that all members of that group will receive automated weather notifications for whatever county they are in.
Similarly, this service can be enabled by the end user from their Preferences page. By selecting specific or all weather events, the user will receive automated alerts for their county based on the address they enter into the Regroup system.
