Poor There is a hurricane in the pacific and there is nothing(!) on the map. Not even clouds, wind, or rain. There is more to the US than the contiguous 48. Updates or old. Ridiculous.

USA only ??? I thought Red Cross was here to help the world. App notifications only work for the USA. Would be good to enable world wide.
