Tech for good to the rescue as hurricanes wreak havoc

As Hurricane Irma continues to wreak havoc in the Caribbean and Texas begins the recovery following Hurricane Harvey, a team of UK-based app developers have been working round the clock to support the efforts of its client, The American Red Cross.
