“Sweet April showers do spring May flowers.” – Thomas Tusser, 1557

June 2008 Central United States Floods and TornadoesThis is the time of the year where the snow starts to melt, the rainy days of April are just around the corner, and umbrellas come out of hibernation. The increase in water can cause concern and create ideal conditions for floods or flash floods. Did you know floods are the most common natural disaster in the United States? We want you and your loved ones to be prepared and safe. That’s why we’re happy to introduce the American Red Cross Flood App.

The app provides flood watch and flood warning alerts right to your phone. No cell phone or wireless signal? There’s a bunch of preloaded content on what to do before, during, and after a flood. You can find open Red Cross shelters based on your location, take tests, and there’s even a button you can press that will automatically let family and friends know you’re safe.

There’s so much to read and do that it’s probably just easier if you experience it yourself! Apple and Android users can download the American Red Cross Flood App free of charge. Stay safe and prepared with all of our mobile apps.
