DALLAS, Texas (1080 KRLD) – Instead of relying on the sounds or the sight of a potentially deadly thunderstorm, you can now rely on an app called, “Pocket Perry.”

The creator says the smartphone app tracks lighting strikes in real time and alerts the user to get out of harm’s way.

Collin Perry with Perry Weather Consulting and the company Creative Gurus came up with the idea.

Schools and PGA tour groups are now actively using it.

The app is available at the Apple Store. Just type in Pocket Perry for the free download – or click here.
