American Red Cross Unveils New Tornado App


Tornado season is right around the corner here in Nebraska and the American Red Cross is trying to keep you as safe as possible.

On Monday, the organization unveiled their own tornado app for the iPhone, iPad and android devices.

Some features of the app include severe weather tips, fun quizzes and locations of where a red cross shelter may be near you.

The app uses the GPS system on your phone to alert you if a tornado warning is near you.

Another important feature is an "All Clear" message that pops up after the tornado warning is over.

There is no cost to download the app.
