TULSA - Storm Shield is a life-saving app that acts like a NOAA Emergency Weather Radio on your iPhone.
As Tropical Storm Isaac gains strength in the Caribbean, you can be informed of where it is with Storm Shield's notification alerts.
The app will allow you to keep an eye on the safety of your friends and family who may be in the path of storm. You can use the Hurricane Tracks function to see where Oklahoma falls in the cone of probability.
Storm Shield provides audio alerts in the form of beeps followed by a brief description of the alert type. The audio could wake you in the middle of the night, or give you information you need when you can't stop to look at the phone.
Simply go to http://bit.ly/kjrhstormshield to download the app for iPhone. Development of the app for Android is in the final stages of completion and should be available soon.
