This app gives excellent help in warning & helping prepare for a possible upcoming disaster whether it be a hurricane, tornado, tropical storm or flooding. Living in Florida, we certainly need assistance in preparation for all of the above.
I live on the Hawaiian Islands. And, with Tropical Storm Ana heading right for us and turning into a hurricane, I turned to my Hurricane app for some info. But, the tracker showed nothing, and said nothing about Ana at all, even though it was all over the news. So, don't depend on the tracker at all. It does have some helpful stuff on what to do in the event of an actual hurricane, though.
No crashes as I track Gonzalo. Still the best!
