See Who's At Risk Due to the Weather
With My Friends' Weather, you can see who's at risk when a Breaking Now Alert is activated on Weather.com.
Once you have signed up with your Facebook account, Breaking Now weather alerts will include your friends and family who live in the affected area.
These people will only show for you, and only when you are logged into Facebook.
