As we enter severe weather/storm watch season, remember to download the Red Cross weather apps on your phone. These apps provide information that can be life changing for all. The apps are free and available for download in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store by searching for American Red Cross or by going to redcross.org/mobileapps. Encourage everyone to have an emergency preparedness kit, know the location of local shelters, and be prepared to evacuate if necessary.
