Everything in one place


Some things link to websites others provide information within the app.

With a Cat 4 Hurricane knocking at the door in the Atlantic, this app has useful tips on what you need to prepare. It has links for shelters & Disaster relief - what you need to file (a lot of people do not have the necessary documentation after a disaster).

Falls very short


This app had a lot of potential but doesn't do anything well. Most of the links direct you to the NCDOT mobile site, which fails to properly display on every mobile device. There are also a number of pages within the site that redirect to another page and another page and another page before failing to load the information you're searching for.

I hope that the state government puts money towards redesigning this app so that it can provide useful information efficiently.

Making Checkable Boxes on Lists Would be Good


Great to have this app but I do recommend making check boxes for the preparedness lists.
