Track approaching storms with our ‘Weather Max’ app

With a line of storms passing through the Tampa Bay area Wednesday morning, it’s a great reminder about the importance of having our weather app on your phones to keep you and your family safe.

There’s no better way to get a jump start on your day than with the WFLA Storm Team 8 ‘Weather Max’ app.
