The Virginia Department of Emergency Management has developed the free Ready Virginia mobile app provides emergency planning and preparedness guidance. It also provides location-specific weather warnings, disaster news, shelter and evacuation locations and local emergency management information, among other features.
Gov. Bob McDonnell called the app 1 of the most important ones for Virginians to install on their cell phones or tablets. It's available in the Apple Store or Google Play.
The department also has launched a mobile version of its website at m.vaemergency.gov. The mobile site contains all the information that can be found on the department's regular website.
