By the time the storm rolls in, you might start scrambling to locate everything you need for you and your pet. Having a plan that includes supplies already set aside can help you not only weather the storm successfully but do it together.
The American Red Cross is launching a hurricane app for smart phones.
The nonprofit organization said the technology is designed for people who visit or live in hurricane-prone areas.
Officials say the free app is available for use on both iPhone and Android platforms.
Authorities say the new app gives instant access to local and real-time information on what to do before, during and after hurricanes. It also allows people to monitor personalized weather alerts in locations where family and friends reside and share information with others in their social networks.
