Magic of technology new approach in disaster management

The American Red Cross society set up live updates about Hurricane Sandy for people who have new mobiles Android/iPhones through a free application called Hurricane.  It is now available on iTunes app store and Google play store.
This is very new and easy approach to disaster management. We get the latest news and updates of people who are affected by the disaster and are fleeing from their homes.  It has been proven useful especially for no power available in the areas.  In the storm time power is not supplied due to the heavy rain and wind, in that time this application is very useful for people.  

The application offers more useful tips for people what to do before, and after the storm has passed, and also each and every bit of information it provides about the storm in straight. The Red Cross that all information, especially news, being fed to the app is the most recent and official. Above all, the app has all necessary features that everyone might need in times like this.


   Massage: The Hurricane app offers one touch “I’m safe” messaging to serve as reassurance for our families and friends that we are out of the harm’s way. The message will be broadcast-ed to social media outlets for everyone to see.

        THE RED CROSS OFFICE LOCATIONS: Using the app, we can easily locate open Red Cross shelters near our current position. It is difficult and too risky to wander off looking for safe places to stay during the storm; this feature is most useful to save us.

       FAMILY EMERGENCY PLAN TIPS: There are simple steps and checklists available in the app that we can use to create a family emergency plan. When we  anxiety , it is difficult to think clearly on what to do, so Red Cross made sure that with the help of the app, we will be guided with this app correctly.

      Hurricane Sandy weakened to a Category 1 storm late 25th of this month as it hovers over low-lying southeastern islands in the Bahamas. In Friday, the storm already left 31 an accident as it continues to gain mass spawning a “HYBRID” super storm. It is expected to hit the U.S. East Coast and cause even more destruction before it exits the country. If any one of us are ones the people that will be affected by Hurricane Sandy or know someone who might be in its way, better to download the app now.

No doubt about of it. This app is a technology magic. See how the technology is used to us.  God is great/Nature is great to give ideas to our minds.  So we thanks to God/Nature and Scientists
