A smart phone can do just about anything, but can it help you to be ready for a tornado?
If you have a smartphone, you know there is an app for nearly anything you want to do. Since your cell phone is likely to be one of the essentials you take with you when you head for your storm shelter, make sure you have apps downloaded to your phone that will help you in severe weather. Below are some helpful items to help you prepare and be ready for a tornado.
- The American Red Cross tornado app is number one on the list. It can help you understand and prepare for a tornado and includes interactive quizzes and simple step-by-step advice.
- A weather app, such as those from either NOAA or the Weather Channel, gives you everything you need to know about the weather, including basics like the current temperature and the hour-by-hour forecast, radar maps and more.
- RadarScope takes it all to the next level, displaying information that meteorologists consider when they provide thunderstorm and tornado information. This app allows users to view NEXRAD Level 3 and super resolution radar data.
- iHandy Flashlight is more than just a flashlight. It includes a strobe for emergencies, as well as a compass. All three of these features can be handy in the event of a tornado or other severe weather.
- Google Maps can help you navigate when you are caught in a storm and provide live traffic updates to keep you out of a jam.
