The American Red Cross has launched its official tornado app, putting lifesaving information right in the hands of people who live in, visit or have loved ones in tornado-prone areas.
The free app — available in English or Spanish — gives Apple and Android smart phone and tablet users instant access to local and real-time information, so they know what to do before, during and after a tornado.
