A suite of apps for different natural disasters, such as hurricanes, earthquakes and tornados. All of which are customised for the user's location, dangers and preferences. The apps needed to offer all this information as well as be personalised so users could monitor certain locations and not receive alerts they didn't want.
The apps track disasters and map out areas that are effected by different hazards, providing fact files and information like what to put in an emergency kit and giving users the ability to find their nearest Red Cross shelter in case they have to evacuate.
Saving Lives During Hurricane Harvey.
Hurricane Harvey caused the worst flooding disaster in US history. While the American Red Cross were mobilising relief workers to support response efforts and help those in need, we were busy 7,732 km away making sure that the app didn’t crash and could be relied on. At the peak of the storm, we were receiving 5,500 server requests per minute for emergency information.
