While San Antonio is hundreds of miles from the Texas coast, that doesn't mean people who live in the city doesn't need to monitor tropical weather.

Now, doing that is much easier.

KSAT-12 has a Hurricane App available for iPhone and Android users.

The app will

  • show live radar;
  • monitor the storm's projected path;
  • offer late-breaking storm information from Weather Authority meteorologists Steve Browne, Mike Osterhage, John Honoré and Justin Horne;
  • provide latest watches and warnings once a hurricane is being tracked;
  • offer tips to plan and prepare for a storm.

The app is free. Just search in the app store for the keyword "KSAT."
