Posted: 05/16/2013 - The Red Cross offers a free Tornado App, putting lifesaving information right in the hands of people who live in, visit or have loved ones in tornado-prone areas.

The app includes a high-pitched siren and “tornado warning!” alert that signals people when a NOAA tornado warning has been issued in their area – even if the app is closed.
