There are a multitude of weather apps available on the Google Play And Apple Stores, some of which we have no doubt looked at over time, but when it comes to detecting tornadoes, it is always better to get a more specialist app, such as Tornado by American Red Cross.
By using this tornado weather alert app you will increase your chances of survival because of its useful features. The Android version of this app was updated on March 24, whereas the iOS version received its update on April 15th.
With this app you will be given all the advice you need in order to prepare your home for a tornado, and to make it easier for you to remember, the American Red Cross tornado app comes with interactive quizzes. It might sound a bit silly at first, but it is great to learn this sort of stuff because there is a good chance you will need to call upon what you have learned.
That is not all, as this app will play a loud siren when the NOAA has issued a Tornado warning. You will be given plenty of time to prepare for the Tornado, and you will also know when it is safe.
We know that in some circumstances cell towers go down when a Tornado lands, and it is understandable that this will cause some panic, but this app will allow you to prioritize what actions need to be taken.
Some of the updates with the latest Android version of this Tornado app are news alerts, improved reliability for monitoring for locations, a new weather map tab and also a new polygon area for locations.
As for the iOS version of this Tornado weather alert app, there have been fixes for missing content, and a bug that allowed the app to crash form some of you has also been fixed.
Do you think it is okay to use a normal weather app or is it better to use one that focuses on just tornados?
