Preparing Smartphones for Hurricane Florence

As Hurricane Florence continues to make its way towards the East Coast, USAA has recommended ways to prepare your smartphone for extreme weather.

"Taking a couple minutes to update your mobile devices with key information can provide an invaluable lifeline and peace of mind in its aftermath," according to Elizabeth Gulick, executive director of Catastrophe Operations at USAA.

Cell phones can become essential tools to keep in touch with family as well as stay updated on recovery efforts.

USAA recommends creating a texting phone tree, a network of contacts to reach quickly after extreme weather as texting may be the only form of communication.
