GENEVA COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — With Wednesday morning’s severe weather, Geneva County saw firsthand how their new, computer notification system worked, keeping residents informed of such things as severe thunderstorms and tornado watches.

Downed trees and a clear line of debris from Wednesday morning’s severe weather in Coffee Springs. Geneva County EMA Director Brian Smith says the system was covered by the alerting system.

It covers a range of events like severe weather, and even road and utility announcements. Smith says hyper-reach gives notifications on weather and other matters.

In order for one to sign-up, they can go to the hyper-reach QR code. Open your camera and scan the code, this will give you the option to go to the website. One can also call 334-248-9100, or go to the hyper-reach website.

“Very similar to what we had before but our mission is to get as many people signed up to this as much as possible. Even though those signed up in our previous system we would like them to go back in and make sure they are signed up for weather emergencies as well as other types of emergencies,” according to Smith.

Smith says the notification system worked without a hitch when relaying weather alerts to
Geneva County’s 25,000 residents.
