Helping Business Weather the Storm

Response to May 20th Oklahoma Tornado

To all my friends and family that have been asking, our family and house are all fine. No one in the WDT family was hurt, but many people had damage to their homes. I am in San Jose tonight, hating that I am not in Norman with my family. My thoughts and prayers are with all of the people affected, especially for the families of the 90+ people that perished.

WDT sent out over 2.25 Million tornado warnings on Monday to mobile devices. All of the efforts we have done over the past few years to build the capability to deliver that many alerts, all in less than 30 seconds after we received the warning from the NWS, were utilized during the Moore event. I am proud of our team and we hope and pray we saved lives on Monday.
