ITAS Facts

When seconds count, count on ITAS!

The National Weather Service tornado warnings (delivered via TV, sirens, weather radio, wireless emergency alerts, apps, etc.) only prove to show actual damage 25%-30% of the time.

That same percentage for ITAS alerts is 70% and they only come when they apply to your address.

ITAS uses the exact GPS coordinates of your home or business to alert you via text messages when a CONFIRMED or DESTRUCTIVE tornado is headed directly towards you!

Tornadoes killed 78 people in 2020.

Finally! A personalized Tornado Alert Service for only $10 per year

ITAS Enhancements

       Nocturnal Tornado Index (NTI): Assists ITAS with filtering when there is an increased risk of night time tornadoes. 

     Tropical Initiated Tornado Index (TCITI): Assists ITAS with filtering during land falling tropical systems



” I’m so glad I signed up for the Guardian Canary. Last night I kept seeing the weather service announcements about a tornado warning, but I have seen these before and nothing ever happened. I began to wonder if I should get my grandchildren up and move into the bathroom. When I got the alert from Guardian Canary, I knew it was time to take action. Thank God we were not hit by a tornado, but I felt safer. Not only did I receive the alert but my daughter who was at work and my son who lives nearby received it as well.”

I was just about to head out with my son when I got an alert from ITAS stating there was a tornado near. I looked at the weather and the tornado was headed right where I was going. Glad I signed up for this and got the text alert when I did..

I have tested ITAS using test customers set up in a grid every 5 miles or so all across the United States. I’ve watched hundreds of alerts come in on our test locations. Every time I think of all the real people that are being impacted and wish they were being alerted by our service.

I would not have known about the bad weather near my house if it wasn’t for The Guardian Canary. I got the alert on my phone and turned on the tv to see that the tornado was indeed close to my neighborhood. Thank you for the precise alert and helping us stay safe. I will be recommending you to all my friends and family.
