 This is an Australian app to help with storm preparedness but it applies universally.

Before the Storm – A game for iPhone and iPod touch released by Attorney-General

A free mobile phone game designed to help students and families better prepare for severe storms, is now available at Apple-iTunes.
 

Attorney-General and Minister for Emergency Management Nicola Roxon, who launched the ‘Before the Storm’ mobile phone game at Harkaway Primary School today, said the game was a timely reminder of how important it is for communities to be disaster resilient, and well prepared for severe weather events.

“Big storms can be frightening for kids but learning what to do when a natural disaster strikes will be as easy as pulling out your iPhone and playing ‘Before the Storm’,” Ms Roxon said.

“The devastating floods here in Victoria and in New South Week this week prove how important it is for communities to be well prepared for severe weather events”. " I encourage teachers to use this storm awareness tool to broaden knowledge about disaster resilience and to make it a catalyst for discussion and learning in the classroom,” Ms Roxon said. The game – able to be played on an iPhone or iPod touch – also introduces concepts of recovery after disaster events, including cleaning up safely after a storm and repairing items that have been damaged.

More information about the ‘Before the Storm’ game can be found on the Emergency Management for Schools website or please read the media release Disaster Resilience Mobile Phone Game Released . The game is available at Apple-iTunes
