Users can zoom in to an area, view shelter details, and check a shelter's capacity. The app relies on data from the American Red Cross National Shelter System, which lists approximately 60,000 disaster facilities.

re: 12 Top Health Apps From Uncle Sam
It's great to see the government taking the initative to move healthcare into the 21st century. I especially like the PTSD coach for veterans. There seems to be nothing more intuitive and easy than having apps that help people manage their health & chronic diseases. Now we just need to get the public downloading them!
