"Everything's Coming Up Flood Hack!"

Once you download this app, you're cuts will be bone dry!

A crack team of app developers (Named Flood Hack.) have come together in Google HQ to tackle the flood problem in the UK, and they've come up with a lot of ideas. Only problem is, only people with Sony Xperias will be able to use them, as they're the only phones that don't die at the sight of water.

So far there have been 3 apps that have mostly been considered for use. Don't Panic lets you call for help and get information about the weather and other alerts, whenever you ask for it, Flood Feeder uses and Infographic style interface to present information for things like weather, warnings and transport delays or hindrances, because even when there's flooding, people still LOVE Infographics! Last of all, and my favorite, is the aptly named UKFloodAlerts, which gives you tons of information about things like power cuts and burst rivers.

What do you guys think? Will apps help people in the midst of floods? Or will this just become a novelty after a while? Tell us in the comments below!
