Free American Red Cross Hurricane App

I just wanted to pass this along for anyone in areas that will be effected by Hurricane Sandy. If you have a smartphone, you can download the American Red Cross Hurricane app from the iTunes or Google Play app stores. You can also call “**REDCROSS” (**73327677) and they’ll send you a link to download the app.
