I think it is time to Make California Great Again! I wish we could have the good old days of "Well The Girls Are Frisky in Ole Frisco...a pretty little chick wherever you go..."

For those who don't get the song lyrics it California Sun by The Rivieras https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yy57Xdk9u0o

A shitstorm is nothing compared to what a war between these two could lead to. Remember, both countries have nuclear weapons.

I usually keep a good eye on that stuff too and I'm not even in that part of the country. Then again, I live in one of those areas, that tornados can be so short lived, that they can't detect them on radar.

If I were you, I would reconsider gigabit on Verizon. Don't let customer service and sales lie to you, you can use any router you want without renting theirs. They really push the lies on the gigabit tier. I have a friend that has their gigabit service and it is awesome and while sales will lie their teeth off to get you to rent, the reality of the matter is, with the gigabit tier, you don't need the rental equipment as it is straight ethernet out of the ONT.

Edit, forgot the most important thing on Verizon is that you get gigabit upload as well.

Comcast is your best bet in that case unless you use a streaming service that carries your local stations. In theory, if your local TV signals are strong enough, an antenna may work. While lightning will affect the signal, digital reception of sufficient strength will allow enough good information to come through that the lightning static can be canceled out by the forward error correction in all but the worst cases and even then, you will still be able to get enough information to get the warning through and reception loss wouldn't likely occur until the storm is real close to you anyway.

Television is not the only source of weather information of course. If you have good coverage on FM radio (AM will have a lot of static), that may also be a good substitute. Additionally, the watches and warnings are broadcast by the government and you can get receivers to not only pick them up, but also sound an alarm and unmute automatically when a selected message (type and location) comes through.

These receivers (weather radios) are not that expensive. You can get a good one at Walmart for $30 https://www.walmart.com/ip/Midland-MROWR120B-WR120B-Weather-Alert-1-White/16451519 and there are other brands and models available. You will only get the bulletins, not the commentary, but you can select which warnings and watches you want to come through (some types such as tornado warnings cannot be turned off, but you can discriminate based on location).

My sentiment exactly! When I upgraded to Comcast in 2017, I was blown away. I was originally asking for 25 meg down, 4 meg up (FCC minimum definition of broadband) and they offered a promo (which I kept after it expired) of Blast Internet which was 200 down 10 up (now 300 down). Not only do I get quality service, I get 120% of promised speeds (which they say is actually normal).

Their TV service sometimes is a bit to be desired, but that is mainly for others in the household (who when that actually seen off antenna reception and when working at their camper it blew them away on the quality).

I don't have mobile (we have AT&T) or voice (we have a VoIP PBX and a SIP provider for that).
