Alerting Needs

Researchers have long known that in-cloud lightning often serves as an early indicator of extreme weather -- from heavy rain and hail to dangerous cloud-to-ground lightning strikes and tornadoes. Understanding the enormous value of total lightning data, Earth Networks-WeatherBug launched what would soon become the largest Total Lightning Network.

Our network detects both cloud-to-ground lightning and in-cloud lightning strikes that are not always visible to the naked eye. Our network uses advanced lightning sensors and patent-pending technology to monitor the location and intensity of both in-cloud and cloud-to-ground lightning in real time. Our sensors are part of a network, so if one sensor goes offline, lightning detection continues -- helping to ensure safety.

By teaming with Earth Networks - WeatherBug, you'll have a variety of tools to help keep you, your family and your community safer from lightning. Join the millions of people around the world who have tapped the power of our Total Lightning Network to stay safer when storms with lightning threaten.



Our Total Lightning Network sets a new standard with in-cloud and cloud-to-ground lightning detection. In-cloud lightning detection is crucial to improve lead times. We provide decision makers with critical intelligence through multiple alerting platforms, including mobile apps, desktop apps, and visualization tools.

Our Outdoor Alerting System is designed to alert when lightning approaches a predetermined radius around your facility.   Schools, parks, stadiums and other facilities rely on our outdoor alerting system to stay safer when lightning approaches a predetermined radius.
