Back in March the American Red Cross launched a tornado app for your iPhone and Android mobile device. This app sounds an alarm and notifies you when a tornado warning is issued for your area.

You can also set other locations to monitor. Maybe the city where your parents live or the city where your son is going to college.

Another thing that is good about the app is that it gives you information about what to do before, during and after a tornado hits.

You can get the app from the Play Store for Android and iTunes from your Apple device. You can also get detailed instructions on how to set up the app once you download it.

With the threat of severe weather today, and in light of what happened in Oklahoma yesterday, it would be a good idea to download this app today. Keep in mind also, that we will always have severe weather coverage on-air, so as soon as the app notifies you of a tornado warning be sure to turn on your radio to get the very latest information!
