The hurricane app that Floridians and others useUpdated on August 1, 2020 (originally posted on September 25, 2018).

I’m sure you’ve heard that there’s a hurricane (Isaias) that will hit Florida later today and travel up the East Coast next week. I know, just what 2020 needs. Sadly, this is just the first of what could be many major storms as meteorologists have predicted an active Atlantic hurricane season, which runs annually from June 1st to November 30th.

With this week’s storm and more to come, I thought it was a good time to feature what is regarded as the number one hurricane tracking app.

I first learned about it two years ago while attending the SATW conference in Barbados and a big storm was brewing nearby. It was there that a colleague from Miami told me about the Max Tracker hurricane app. The app is free on both Android and iOS and powered by Max Mayfield, the former director of the National Hurricane Center. His team of meteorologists brings you the latest and most accurate information on developing tropical systems.

It’s super easy to use. You’ll see seven tiles when you open the app, with the largest at the top showing the most imminent storm threat. The others are “Tropics Watch,” “Local Radar,” “Watches & Warnings,” “Storm Tracker,” “Plan & Prepare,” and “Live Updates.” It provides all the information you need in one place to help keep you and your family informed and safe.
