Learning about hurricane preparedness/evacuation routes (Update: There's an app)

Update: If you're unable to attend a town hall meeting that details information about hurricane evacuation routes, worry not. Horry County Emergency Management has developed a smartphone/tablet app that uses GPS technology to determine where you are and the evacuation route that applies to your location, among other county map services. It's available for Android and Apple devices. http://www.horrycounty.org/mobile/.
