Called “Notify!”, the subscription-based service will deliver alerts about severe weather, such as tornado warnings, to users through their home phones, mobile phones, email or pagers.

The service cost $49.99 a year.

“Notify! delivers detailed weather warnings to BellSouth customers in real time so they can always be prepared if severe weather strikes,” said Paulino Barros, chief product officer for BellSouth. “We help them control how they are contacted about weather impacting their area.”

Notify! Allows users to customize alerts, such as what kind of weather information they want to receive. Alerts can be delivered to as many as three phones as well as email and pager.
