American Red Cross Hurricane App Available

Posted: Updated:

WMDT 47 News - Social Media and smart phone technology have been used as a tool by many government and news agencies to inform residents about the storm, and now there's one to help you get through it.

The American Red Cross has a smart phone app called "Hurricane by American Red Cross" that not only lets you monitor conditions in your area, but also has tips to help prepare families and homes, find help, and let others know you're safe.

It features step by step instructions on what to do before, during, and after the storm, even if there is no data connection.

This includes a tool kit with a flash light and alarms, as well as a map that points users to the nearest shelter.

With the number of power outages throughout Delmarva, this can be a useful tool to help you and your family weather the storm.

The American Red Cross hurricane app is available for Apple and Android operating systems, or if you call "**REDCROSS" (**73327677) from your mobile device, they will send you a link to download.

Also, be sure to download the free WMDT 47 News app for the latest on Sandy and any other local news.
