Whirl Wind of Apps for Tornado

With most Americans having smartphones, it is easy to have preparedness information right in your pocket. Ashley Sylvester, a prepared mother of two children and survivor of the 2013 Oklahoma tornado, shares in the America’s PrepareAthon! disaster survivor video she had emergency preparedness mobile applications (apps) that were  vital to her. When she received the alert about an impending tornado via a tornado mobile app, she knew it was serious and was able to quickly move her family to their safe room.
