Know What’s Happening
Of all the things that modern smartphones can do, keeping us connected, informed and in touch with the outside world is one of their most important features. In a disaster or emergency scenario, your iPhone can also be priceless for getting the latest news and updates.
For example, you can subscribe to weather alerts from the National Weather Service at this link. There are also numerous free apps that can access AM, FM or satellite radio over a Wi-Fi or cellular connection. It may also be a good idea to download apps for your local news stations and keep an eye on first-hand reports via social media in your area.
