13-year-old Israeli creates iPhone app to warn of missile attacks

The Times of Israel:

The application, which is not an official warning system, is the brainchild of 13-year-old Beersheba resident Liron Bar. Bar provides constant reports on missile attack warnings, known as Color Red alerts, and rocket strikes in the south on his Facebook page as well.

Kudos to this kid, but I do wish we lived in a world where it wasn’t necessary.
