The well-known weather-alarm app has been enhanced by a useful new feature: the flood alert.
In collaboration with the «Bundesamt für Umwelt» (BAFU), the weather alarm app now also alerts in case of upcoming floods of specific rivers and lakes.
The alarms are sent via push notification and are shown within the app in the personal favorites and on the flood overview map. Several danger levels are distinguished: from moderate to very big danger.
Users of the weather alarm app are now warned in all possible cases of severe weather. But also in case of «normal» weather the app offers to its over 750'000 users a lot of useful functions: detailed 7-day-weather forecasts, a zoomable Swiss-weather-forecast map, an interactive rain radar and much more.
«Weather-Alarm» is the Swiss weather warning service, provided by Kantonale Gebäudeversicherungen and Helvetia Insurance, with meteorological data from SRF Meteo.
