App of the Month: Hurricane - American Red Cross
Posted by: Christine Bulson

There are a number of hurricane apps and here is the Red Cross entry.  Preparation steps, what to do during a hurricane and how to recover are suggested.  An alert system is provided for the individual's location plus adding alerts for locations of family and friends. An "I'm safe" feature lets a person report that they are safe via e-mail, text, Facebook or Twitter.  A tool box contains a flashlight, strobe light and an alarm.  There is also a map showing where open shelters are located.  Now all that is necessary during a hurricane is a fully-charged smart phone or iPad.
