Mobile apps for tracking Hurricane Isaac
August 28th, 2012 by Susan Smith
Hurricane Isaac has shifted its path from threatening Florida and the Republican National Convention and has moved far west, now following a path through the Gulf very similar to the one Hurricane Katrina traveled seven years ago.
It is predicted to be a weaker Category One storm when it makes landfall, with sustained winds of between 74 and 95 miles per hour, yet it’s still said to be a hurricane. The hurricane is prompting the governors of Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi to declare emergencies (and in Alabama’s case, the governor to order mandatory coastal evacuations).
Now more than ever before, just about every citizen can be equipped with a mobile app to help with tracking those hurricanes. Here’s a rundown of 2012′s top hurricane tracking apps for those on the go with tablets or smartphones: EZ Apps’ $2.99 Hurricane Tracker, Hurricane Hound (Android), Hurricane / Hurricane HD (iOS), Hurricane Software (Android), iHurricane HD (iOS), Hurricane — American Red Cross (Android, iOS) (see article)
