Our Lifeline!!!

This year, unfortunately, we’ve all encountered exceptional disasters, from the fires, to the Coronavirus, and everything in between. This app has been my lifeline. I will get immediate alerts on my phone to important information that I otherwise would have missed, I watch live or recorded segments with vital information that I otherwise would never have been able to see if I didn’t have this app near me. I advise anyone who does not have this, to get it now. It truly could save your life, and it’s also just a nice communication link to everything you need.

Fire coverage in Moraga.

My family was cut off from most of the communication when the power went off in Moraga and then the fire in Moraga broke out, the authorities cut off the home WiFi..but we found out that they could get text messages from me in San Jose. I started sending them your news via text and she could open them. At 6:00 am they found out from me and your app that the fire was a 4 min. drive from their home. And they were never warned....
I flipped to other channels but no one was on the ground in Moraga..thank you for your up close coverage....

Perfect APP...Huge timesaver

Who doesn’t wanna know what’s going on in 2020, especially now; in the Bay Area specifically? Surfing news channels and recording various news channels is finally a thing of the past for me ...thanks to this APP. I wish I knew about it sooner and am overjoyed to know now. Thank you NBC...I’ve had this APP less than a day and it’s already been a huge blessing to me...timely answering ALL my questions in one place ...& informing me of what I didn’t know and want to know 👍👏😊🙏💜
