Living in hurricane-prone areas, residents are familiar with the things that they need in advance of possible hurricanes. Water and food and, if possible, a back-up generator are essential, but a communication tool that works when cell towers are down is just as important. Communicating with family, friends, and neighbors regarding well-being or sending them critical information could be life-saving.

During a recent discussion with a NeedUNow user in Miami, we were reminded of just how important NeedUNow is during hurricane season and all the ways it could have helped during past seasons:
“During hurricane Irma, a tree fell on top of my house. Since we had hurricane shutters on, I could not see outside. My neighbor saw how dangerous the situation could be since there was a chance that my roof could collapse. She called me several times but I had my cell phone on silent. I had my family download NeedUNow as soon as I heard about it, and have asked our neighbors to do the same. We’ll never go through another hurricane without it.” – Alexis
