Instant Severe Weather Information Source
When severe weather is approaching Whitley County local fire departments are dispatched to about ten different areas of the county to give live updates on the weather around them. Scan Whitley Online users can hear all of this over our live stream.
During severe weather constant updates are provided over our live stream with current conditions all around the county. These can include forming tornadoes, strong winds, heavy snow and everything else. Smaller storms that do not present much of a threat may not have these updates.
Listening to Scan Whitley Online during these times can help you stay informed and plan accordingly. If you must take shelter you can continue listening over your laptop or other mobile devices such as your iPhone, Droid, or Blackberry.
Scan Whitley Online has a long supply of backup power, so even if our receiving station in Larwill loses power, it keeps running for one to two hours. With our stable power source and the ability for you to listen on your phone, you can continue to receive updates even if power is out throughout the entire county.
Most of the updates on severe weather are over digital channels. This means they typically come in crystal clear and are very easy to understand. Not only do you hear updates from the fire departments, but also from the dispatch center from people calling in and the Sheriff's Department from their officers around the county.
Let your friends and family know about this valuable source of information during severe weather.
Digital Scanner Is Live!!!Scan Whitley Online is happy to announce our new digital scanner is finally online. The Whitley County Sheriff's Department is now back on our stream and we are now prepared for any other local agencies that also switch over to digital in the future.
