Hurricane Dorian’s recent destructive trek is an important reminder to remain vigilant in preparing for potential future hurricanes and other natural disasters. Mobile apps, including those for social media, can be helpful tools during rough weather.
One of the first hurricane-tracking apps created, Hurricane Pro provides real-time updates. The American Red Cross app gives valuable tips and instructions for emergencies. Traffic and navigation app Waze offers vital information on evacuee routes, traffic updates and redirects around closed roads and downed power lines. FoodFinder helps evacuees locate nearby food pantries and emergency food.
Keep apps updated and phones charged.
