Here in the U.S. we’re in the middle of Hurricane Season — it ends Nov. 30, 2012 this year. The season’s been off to a bit of a slow start over the Atlantic but, as we on the East Coast know too well, it’s typically the later months of summer that bring the most devastating storms.
Jack McMaster, president for Preparedness and Health and Safety Services at the American Red Cross, put it this way:
“This free Hurricane App puts personalized preparedness information in the pockets and purses of those who need it…We’re especially proud of the app’s social features that will help friends and families stay in touch during storms, reducing much of the fear and uncertainly for loved ones and property owners far away.”
The Red Cross’ first app – First Aid – served up basic first-aid tips and procedures when out and about in this dangerous world. Following its success, the Red Cross released Hurricane and promises more apps for such natural disasters as earthquakes, floods and tornadoes.
