Allamakee County Alert Iowa Emergency Alert Message System
Alert Iowa is a statewide emergency alert message system Allamakee County is using to send emergency messages to its local residents.
The system allows county officials and the National Weather Service to communicate emergency information directly to county citizens via voice call, text message, and/or email. This includes weather and non-weather-related notifications.
Weather Emergency Alert Options include Severe Thunderstorm, Tornado, Flood and Flash Flood, Winter Storm, Winter Weather, Excessive Heat, Extreme Cold and Wind Chill, and Freeze and Frost Watch and Warning alerts.
