Typhoon Warning Service?
Does anyone know of a subscription-type service I could sign up for which would send me an alert/email/notification if a reasonably sized-typhoon is approaching my area? I noticed last year my phone's weather app labels them as "heavy rain" and I find it both misleading and perilous for the stuff we keep on our balcony that can be blown away.
The name is Kp or KpMcD (Kristin, actually, but for the sake of continuity let's stick with the nickname, shall we?) Hailing from the Midwest US and living in Nagoya with my husband (The Mister), my dobermutt (Mac) and an elitist marmalade tabby who answers to no one (Bubba).
I personally use the Japan Meteorological Agency, but as far as I know they don't send alerts... or maybe I need to turn something on to get them. If you read Japanese you can use http://weathernews.jp/ and set up an alert. Even if you don't read Japanese this site has great graphs and videos that give you a clear visual of what's going on.
