OKLAHOMA CITY -

The American Red Cross has launched a free Earthquake App that offers lifesaving information to people who live in or visit earthquake prone areas.

The Earthquake App, available in English and Spanish, gives instant access on what to do before, during, and after earthquakes. It can send messages to family and friends, letting them know you're okay.

The app has several features, including real-time alerts, "Shake Zone Impact Map," and more. It also provides locations of Red Cross shelters and has checklists to create an emergency plan.

"Oklahoma residents will receive earthquake notifications and can monitor activity where other family and friends reside," said Ken Garcia, Regional Communications Director of Central and Western Oklahoma Region of the Red Cross. "People who do not live in earthquake-prone areas can have peace of mind knowing you'll have instant information about loved ones."
