Since 2013, we have led an effort to Help Families Stay Safe from Tornadoes and Severe Weather.


Our Mission


Our mission is to provide you with critical information about incoming storms and severe weather. We've achieved this in part by launching the fastest severe weather alerting system available. This helps keep families and businesses safe by instantly sending subscribers a Text Message Alert with pin-point accuracy. When severe weather threatens, we have more than 100 social media sites which we can instantly post to, reaching over 10 million unique users per year.

We've also grown to 29 extraordinary team members which includes 5 Meteorologists (1 working on his PhD), 2 third year Meteorology students, 8 skilled severe weather forecasters, 7 experienced storm spotters and 5 dedicated weather enthusiasts that allow us to take our tornado and severe weather situational awareness to the next level. 

More importantly, we're incredibly grateful to have such a passionate community of families helping other families stay safe by reporting and sharing! Each and every one of you who participates in our severe weather discussion, whether it's to report snow or ice, rain or tornadoes, should pat yourselves on the back! You're making a difference everyday in the lives of your fellow community members and for that, we cannot thank you enough.

“I want to give a big Thank you to the OTW crew. I received a text alert around 8am informing me of multiple areas of brantford being evacuated for flooding. Coming Hours before any other alert we received from other services, we were able to make it to my elderly disabled family members BASEMENT APARTMENT and get them to safety in time. Being across the street from the retaining wall that held back the water. We left the driveway as the wave of water rushed over the top of the wall heading into the house. At that moment all I could think was if we were minutes later we may not have been able to get him out. The OTW service saved lives today. My family cannot thank you enough. You do an amazing job especially when it counts most. Thank you very much”
