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.
