Flood Alert App for iOS Devices Launched
In this day and age of storms and flood wouldn’t it be nice to be alerted to potential flood situations before you’re actually standing knee deep in water? Well if you own an iOS device, you’ve probably guessed there’s an app for that.
The Flood Alert app for the iPhone, iPod Touch and Apple iPad from Halcrow is the first flooding app on the market and uses the Environment Agency’s live flood warning data feeds, enabling user to quickly monitor flooding areas close to them.
With the Flood Alert app for iOS devices the Environment Agency deliver Halcrow with live flood warnings data throughout England and Wales 24 hours per day aand will enable users to receive alerts based on their location along with 2 extra locations.
Richard Crowder of Halcrow has said…“Over five million people in England and Wales live and work in properties that are at risk of flooding from rivers or the sea. Everyone in an ‘at risk’ area needs to be aware of flooding and the current weather situation, even when on the go”.
The Flood Alert app for the Apple iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone can be downloaded for free from iTunes while a professional Flood Alert app will be available later in the year along with an Android version.
