You can track Hurricane Sandy with Google mapsAuthor : Sharath Kumar October 30, 2012 0
BANGALORE, INDIA: Hurricane Sandy now has its very own Google Crisis Map.
According to Google, the Sandy’s map provides locals with information on the storm’s path, forecast information, evacuation routes, areas of high wind probability and even links to webcams surrounding affected areas.
Hurricane Issac used a similar Crisis Map to track the storm, follow public alerts and find shelters.
Engadget reports that The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal are lifting site paywalls during the storm, ensuring the public has access to developing news as long as their internet connection doesn’t give out.
