SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – A crowdsourcing app that allows you to find available gas, has been activated in Georgia, Florida, South Carolina and North Carolina ahead of Hurricane Dorian.

GasBuddy is an app normally used to find cheaper gas prices, but the developers of the app have now set a fuel availability tracker for people to find gas during the storm.

The app shows stations that do not have gas, diesel or electric so motorists can find other stations. Motorists update the app with different station closings to help other users.

The app is available for download in the IOS and Google Play stores. Drivers can also follow GasBuddy on Twitter to get the latest updates on stations with available fuel or power.
