Hurricane App

This app is sending out latest news and help offers in case of a hurricane.

This app was developed by the American Red Cross following Hurricane Sandy. It is designed to support affected persons and those in need of help with the following functions: an “I'm Safe” message that is automatically sent to friends and family via social media, a weather alarm that can be personalised for regions and locations where family members live, details of nearby support facilities, family emergency plan checklists, mobile phone flashlights and signal alarms. The app is available for iPhones and Android devices and is so well designed that it has received multiple awards.
