Disaster Log Phone App for Hurricane Recovery

As Hurricane Irene bears down on the East Coast, Becky Koch, Ag Communication Director at the University of North Dakota, offered this new tool to help deal with the potential. North Dakota has suffered from numerous floods, so they developed a Disaster Recovery Log app for Android smartphones. (Sorry, but iPhone app will be coming soon.) People who are affected by any disaster can download the app, then take photos of damage and record information about the damage by writing it into the phone or audio recording it. Then they can click on information on how to (if possible) clean the item from water damage. That's a direct link to appropriate Extension resources and a record of your damage for your insurance agent or FEMA.
