Awesome! That section has been fixed on our page.
Based on what we just learned, logically, the new dataPoints should be:
$twcweather.alerts.synopsis $twcweather.alerts.texts.description $twcweather.alerts.texts.instruction $twcweather.alerts.texts.languageCode $twcweather.alerts.texts.overview
I don’t think we’ve tried the last 4 yet…
comes back “null”
The last 4, unfortunately, I already tried, and the come back with nothing
I really hope I am wrong, but it may very well be SmartThings decided not to pay for that informative data… I mean, it has never returned on normal queries to:
returns the full text again:

Yea, that’s what I mean. There is no reference in that text to any of the following:
My alert time ran out… it ended at 8:00 PM.
Thanks again for taking the time, @dejavux2…
I gotta say though… I find it a bit strange that essentially, the weather alerts come down to only 2 or 3 words…
Logically, it makes sense to have a paragraph of detailed information available at the same time…
Hopefully, that data is just buried, and between all of us, we can dig it up…
That’s the plan!
Whenever I get another alert, I want to play with the “eventDescription”… hopefully it’s something along those lines… like “eventOverview” or “eventNarrative”…
There’s also “headlineText” to play with… maybe “overviewText” or “narrativeText”…
Now I want to try all of these, but must wait for the next alert…
If it helps, here is the link to that 2016 document… About 90% of it has been verified to still be accurate & working.
The main exceptions (still in question) are:
I was expecting an error for the following, but instead I got a “null”:
I was reading through the API standards and trying to decipher…
Don’t know if this is helpful, but I got this a few days:
areaName:Los Angeles County
countryName:UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
headlineText:Flood Advisory until WED 1:30 PM PST
source:National Weather Service
Thanks for the contribution, @Phrankc…
I double checked, and I believe all of that data is already on the Wiki page…
Got a new one that I didn’t see on the wiki.

So curious what the latest piston is for this? I would like to use and see if I can assist in any way.
The piston is in the first post here… and is used to gather alerts for our location…
99% of the time, nothing happens, but when there is an alert, it writes to the log, and sends a SMS to make you aware.
When you get a unique alert, you can copy/paste directly from your log to here, and I will keep the Wiki updated.
(and “Thank You” in advance!)
PS. I have not forgotten your last post, @Koyfam
Going to partake in this but not sure I’ll be of much help. Florida doesn’t have a lot of different weather events. sun/rain on/off. pretty much it.
Thanks man, I appreciate it. You may still get alerts for hurricanes or flooding that we have not seen yet…
After two straight days of rain in Georgia I got these…
