There's a new app for Iphone and Android that could help North Carolinians in this week's winter weather. It's called ReadyNC.
This app does not replace 9-1-1. Rather, it's a place to look for local weather or road conditions, or to find a local shelter if needed. The app is even designed to offer real-time flood conditions on local waterways.
The app launched not long ago, so this will be its first big test.
If you search for the app on iTunes or the Apple App Sotre, look for "ReadyNC" (No space.)
