Adverse Weather Leading To Big Growth In Nixle Alerts

One Alabama police department is using severe weather as an opportunity to promote a system that can give you real-time weather updates. Madison Police say the Nixle alerts allowed drivers to avoid hazardous road spots during a blast of wintry weather earlier this month. The police department does not keep tabs on total registration, but said they expect to see a lot more people signing up for Nixle this week in light of the severe weather threat.
