SMS Text Alerts on

December 2nd, 2009 at 11:30 am by under Inside WOOD TV8

As of this morning, we now have SMS Text Alerts available on Included are weather alerts, school closings, forecasts and more. Here is the link to sign up:

This change affects all the people who previously signed up to have cell phone text messages sent for Weather Warn or School Closings. In these cases, the cell phone numbers and accounts have been moved to the new SMS Text Alerts system. These people should continue to get the same alerts as before. The difference is that they will need to make changes through the SMS Text Alerts page.

You can find the link to this page in the Site Tools module which appears on many pages of the site.
Here’s the breakdown of how the new email and text messages are organized.
- Weather Warn
- School Closings
- Daily weather forecast
- Daily news update
- Breaking news
Text Alerts
- Weather alerts
- Weather forecast
- School closings

    Ya know, maybe,”maybe”, “MAYBE” ,,, something beside weather may have happened in Michigan today. Your nightly news was dedicated to almost entirely WEATHER stuff. I know “something” else must have happened in Michigan. I am so glad WLNS6 out of Lansings had news on to keep us Michiganders informed. Yep, I watched them at 6pm,,, just had to see if “something” else did happen in Michigan. I was right,,,it did! But you couldn’t tell any one about. Your good,,,,,, but PLEASE don’t get stuck in a rut again like today,,, please?????
    thanks for your time,,,,,don
