During tornado season, preparation is crucial for survival. The following tornado warning apps can be downloaded onto a smartphone or tablet.

1. Tornado by the American Red Cross
The American Red Cross has created this free app for iPhone and Android users to provide weather alerts from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The app sounds an alarm when a tornado warning has been issued and alerts users when the tornado warning is no longer in effect. Other features include a one-touch “I’m safe” message and preloaded information that is available even if phone lines go down, according to the American Red Cross.

This app is available for a one-time fee of $10 for iOS and Android users and is used by professional storm chasers and meteorologists to track the paths of storms and tornadoes. The app gives real-time information about the distance of the user relative to the storm or tornado.
