Stay connected with KTTC after our text messaging services end

If you subscribe to any of our KTTC text messaging services, you need to know that those messages will stop on April 29, 2016. We want to thank you for signing up. We also want you to know how you can get a lot of the same, great information from our other digital products.

The KTTC Precision Weather App is a great source for severe weather alerts and school closings information. New this spring, the first screen will feature a headline indicating that school closings are available when any are active. When severe weather is active, the app will automatically let you know with another headline.

You can then track the storm using the interactive tools in the weather app. You can also choose to enable voice alerts for severe weather. You will hear Chief Meteorologist Randy Brock's voice tell you when severe weather is active in your area. And you can watch live streaming video of special weather coverage, in addition to our live streaming newscasts. Click here to download the weather app for iOS and Android devices.

The KTTC News App also features severe weather information, school closings and live streaming video. It's a great way to watch our live severe weather coverage and news stories when you're away from your television. We'll also send you push alerts for breaking news. Click here to download the news app for iOS and Android devices.

And you can sign up for our KTTC Precision Weather Email Services, either severe weather alerts, daily forecasts or both. Click here to sign up for email weather updates.

Of course you can count on the NewsCenter team for breaking news and severe weather coverage on our website and on television.

Prior to April 29, you can text the word STOP to our short code at any time to stop our text messaging services. At any time, you may delete any messages you received from us from your mobile device. Again our text messaging services (SMS) will end on April 29th. Thanks again for using KTTC text messaging.
