How to Search for Storms by Address

You can easily search the PSAI weather map based on a specific street address or a general region, allowing you to find high-value storm opportunities in and around the areas you serve. Follow the instructions below.

Note that you can search by a specific street address or by a wider region. In the screenshot below, for example, a search for "Fort Worth" allows you to select the city as a whole.

3. View Recent Storms in the Area

From the zoomed-in view of your chosen address, you'll see a list of the most recent storms to affect this location. This list is presented in reverse chronological order, with any storms happening in the last 24 hours noted by a LIVE tag.

4. Use Filters to Narrow Results

To narrow down the list of storms, take advantage of the filters at the top of the search panel.

Here's more information on these filtering options:

  • The hail filter ranges from .5" to 3.00" and up. You can also choose to hide hail.
  • The wind filter ranges from 40 mph to 75 mph and up. You can also choose to hide wind.
  • The "date range" feature allows you to select a specific date range to target. (Keep in mind that more recent storms are much more effective at generating leads.)

If there has been no storm activity that matches your selected tab or filter, then you'll be shown the message below.

Once you've identified a storm that you'd like to target, click it from the list.
