The American Red Cross is promoting a new flood app for your smartphone. 

The app is intended to help reduce losses from flash floods.

It would give users a warning and what safety procedures they should take during an emergency.

Melissa Webber is with the American Red Cross and says there's also a nifty feature that lets loved ones know you're okay. Even though we're in a drought, the Sacramento area is still prone to flash floods.
