Ratings and Reviews
Wvu tech student here! Downloaded the app 2 weeks ago and absolutely love it! The only issue I ran into was not knowing the difference in the types of alerts. For example, there was a silver alert issued and i had no clue what the difference between a silver alert and a gold alert.
The Most Valuable Local App
I love this app and the fact that all important information about weather, accidents, emergencies etc. in Kanawha County, is available in one place. This app is priceless.
Keep it updated
I’m giving this app a 1 star but it’s never updated when there is something going on. My husband get stuck in traffic going to work because of multiple wreaks and he would know to avoid the area if the app was updated.
Get all of your passes, tickets, cards, and more in one place.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
