Twitter is launching a new alert system that will send emergency notifications directly to your phone.
More than 60 organizations have signed up, including the Red Cross, FEMA and emergency management departments.
Twitter users who sign up can decide which alerts they will get.
The site says the goal is get credible information out when other communications services may be down.
