National Hurricane Center apps tracks storms like Isaac 2012
The tropical storm Isaac is expected to hit the Gulf Coast and we have learned it has left 24 dead in Dominican Republic and Haiti over the weekend, the storm is also expected to grow into a hurricane before hitting land between Florida and Louisiana. We have decided to put together a few National Hurricane Center apps for iOS and Android users so that you can track storms such as hurricane Isaac 2012.
First up is the National Hurricane Center mobile website, it is believed that this storm will grow to a category 1 hurricane over the warm Gulf and will hit late Tuesday along a roughly 300-mile (500-kilometer) stretch from the bayous southwest of New Orleans to the Florida Panhandle. See the mobile site by visiting http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/mobile/
Here are a few more apps for your mobile device to keep track of storms and hurricanes, one app worth installing is “Hurricane HD” for you Apple iPad, this has many features such as the ability to track storms, it has an interactive 5 day forecast cone, point’s location, estimated wind speed, distance from each forecast point, push notifications, customized by basin/area, Animated Floater Satellites, Animated Regional US Radar, Computer Models, NHC, CPHC and JTWC Text Products/Bulletins, as well as NHC, CPHC and JTWC Graphical Products. This application is extensive and we recommend you visiting the App Store (iTunes) for more information.
We also like “Hurricane Software”, this is a simple app that allows hurricane tracking, it provides the most up to-date and reliable hurricane coordinates data and high-resolution maps, this is for Android users, please visit Google Play for more info.
This next app is for both iPhone and Android users and is called “Hurricane – American Red Cross”, this app allows you to monitor storm conditions in your area, you can track storms that provide you that precious time to prepare.
