Dint work with Irma??
I literally had Hurricane Irma on top of my island, I dint had electricity so i couldn't watch the news to see what's going, I try the app and it doesn't load whatsoever.
I have now Hurricane Maria tomorrow, let's see if it works from tomorrow onward.
Been with Red Cross for many years
I have saved a life, was taught how to swim, I have taken CPR and First Aid courses I have donated blood, volunteered, and I have seen first hand the unprecedented amount of volunteers that have been there during fires, earthquakes, tornadoes and hurricanes not to mention the wealth of knowledge and skills they put out there to help people learn what to do in a crisis! I have used these apps through many situations including Hurricane Mathew and Irma and did not have any problems whatsoever!!!! As a matter of fact, AT&T and Apple kept us up and running throughout! Thank you to all at the Red Cross for doing the world this outstanding service for so many years and keep up the great work!
I had so many alerts I finally had to delete the app just to get rid of all of the alerts, after ten minutes of deleting I saw no end in sight
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
