*ANYONE NOTICE THAT THERE ARE NOT ANY REPLIES FROM THE RED CROSS?🔇🔕 I couldn't make heads or tails out of the app & I'm using a S8+. It wouldn't even "take" the correct city's when they were typed in. I was hoping for much more from the Red Cross! I was expecting for something that was well done & accurate. For some reason irhsts neither! Completely USELESS to me. Wouldn't do anything correctly! UNFORTRUNATELY... UNINSTALLING NEXT!

This Red Cross Hurricane APP is not as good as it was 5 ye ars ago. I was left to an old fashioned radio with NOAA who is I can rely on NOAA to use the emergency alert warning alarms. Not once did warnings sound. Really bad situation for me As blind woman. Not reliable by any means. The Red Cross Weather APPS are not adaptable for visually impaired/ blind. Need to make Red Cross adaptable for those of us that need verbal since we cannot see.

After more then a year, telling the developer that the tracker still does not give the name of the Hurricane after it is tapped, still has not been fixed on an Android Samsung S21+ 5g. Seems to work fine on an iPhone. Please fix it already!
