Nixle is a very popular alerting site for local emergencies. Nixle sends alerts for traffic problems, severe weather, missing children and a host of other community emergencies. Because you register your location it is very good at sending you only alerts that pertain to your area. BUT, in spite of claims that the service is free, IT IS NOT! I noticed a strange charge on my cell phone bill, called "Enhanced Messaging". When I called NexTel they told me it was billed from a third party. I had it blocked (that was a three-month adventure!), and Nixle alerts stopped coming to my phone. And my Nixle profile page now indiocated my phone is blocked.
