Floydada starts telephone alert system

FLOYDADA, TX (KCBD) - Severe weather warnings will now trigger alerts to people's phones in Floydada.  

Residents will receive a test call around 10 a.m. Friday.  That's to ensure folks are ready to receive important messages. "We're trying to get away from the siren system. There are dead spots if the winds blowing real hard, you don't get the coverage," Floydada City Manager Gary Brown said. 

Besides weather warnings, the city can also use the system to alert residents to construction and other city issues. Publicly listed numbers will automatically be added to the system. You can choose to add your cell phone or private numbers as well.
