Weather Decision Technologies forecast calls for continued growthPublished: Friday, January 19, 2018 By: Jim Stafford Source: NewsOK
Let's say a storm is brewing in southwest Oklahoma. Lightning flashes. Clouds are spinning. A tornado warning is issued.
Now the challenge becomes quickly communicating the warning to hundreds of thousands of Oklahomans who may be living and working in the tornado's path.
Norman-based Weather Decision Technologies owns patented technology that alerts users of warnings using its innovative capabilities within seconds of the imminent threat.
“If a large city is in a tornado warning, we can send a million alerts out in 22 seconds,” said Michael Eilts, WDT's co-founder and CEO. “That's all based upon our patented capability.”
