Finding a safespot in a hurricane

When a hurricane or tropical storm hits close to home, it can be hard to process the information available and take appropriate actions to insure one’s safety. The information is not all located in one place, and often consists of complicated maps and jargon. This can increase cognitive load and anxiety in a stressful situation.

I recently had the opportunity to work with a great collaborative team with data scientists, software engineers, and user experience specialists to create an app to help people in this situation.
