Customer Reviews

Update fixed!

Love the app update! The new alerts feed is great and I can quickly and easily see the area the alert is for and who is being affected. I really like that I can delete alerts once I read them too. Great job Red Cross, keep up the good work!


This is an informative app that can be customized to your weather needs. It will keep you up to speed with only the alerts you need, wherever they are occurring, wherever you choose!

It works as advertised!

Update needs to be fixed

I have an iPhone 5c and this app is great! When I updated it, it seems to not be compatible with my device anymore, it always crashes and nothing loads! Please fix this because it was such a great app!!
