Google is helping people prepare for Hurricane Sandy with a dedicated crisis map (above), as the massive storm moves nearer toward making landfall on the U.S. mid-Atlantic coast today.
The map shows Sandy’s path, reports Mashable, and lets users see information such as the storm’s current location, forecast track, shelter locations and more. Further, Google has a crisis map for New York City, showing evacuation zones and centers and Red Cross emergency shelter.
The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal are also working to get information out on Hurricane Sandy by lifting their paywalls, or screens requiring people to have a paid subscription before being able to access their stories.
