You have three sources to get your weather warnings. News 9, News9.com, News 9 WeatherRadio app for the iPhone and Android phones, and a weather radio are all reliable sources for warnings. Local radio and the internet sites can be also provide good information.
I wouldn't rely on FB or Twitter for warnings alone. They are good sources for conjecture and interactive responses, but the warning message is not always easily received or seen. If you have other sources to count on, then I think it's okay to go to these sources for info.
News 9 does provide warnings on Facebook and Twitter, so like the News 9 page to keep up to date.
Chief Meteorologist David Payne, Jim Gardner and Sky News 9 HD and our entire storm team are ready to go for the storms that develop. You will continue to get the best coverage here on KWTV - NEWS 9!
