Winter Weather Apps for Smart Phones
In North Dakota, winter weather is a frequent hazard. North Dakota State University extension service, together with and Myriad Devices, developed an application for smart phones that address some of the major issues that confront motorist that might be stranded by winter weather. The Winter Survival Kit app will help you find your current location, call 911, notify your friends and family, calculate how long you can run your engine to keep warm and stay safe from carbon monoxide poisoning.
Since Kansas is also known to have winter weather problems, this application will be of interest to Kansans as well. A complete description of the application, plus links to download the free apps can be found at the NDSU extension website:
