Google Produces Map To Help People Watch Hurricane Sandy In Real Time

Posted By on Mon, Oct 29, 2012 at 11:08 AM

Google.org's Crisis Response team has updated its crisis map to follow Hurricane Sandy in real-time, in an effort to help folks prepare for the the forthcoming storm, set to hit land this evening.

The map, which you can see here, has layers, projections and alerts based on data from the National Hurricane Center, the National Weather Service, weather.gov and others. Among the information included is a 3-day forecast cone; the hurricane's projected path; and links to webcams, related YouTube videos, and (most importantly) contact information for area emergency shelters.

Tucson, if you know people in the path of the hurricane, this looks to be a quality tool to help them stay safe.

Be careful out there, friends.
