StormTrack 5 app for iPhone, iPad, Android

The WMC Action News 5 Stormtracker app is a FREE app featuring content from the Mid-South's most reliable weather team. The app includes push alerts for severe weather warnings, lightning, and the ability to submit weather photos and videos to the WMC Action News 5 newsroom.

The alerts are sent based on the device's location, using GPS. This means you don't have to select any particular county; you are simply warned if severe weather is threatening the current location of your device should you choose to accept push notifications.

You can also customize your location and use the StormTrack 5 app if you're traveling, or even if you move out of the Mid-South. Simply switch your default location and you will continue to get alerts for the area you choose.
