Google Launches Crisis Response for Typhoon Hagupit

Google Launches Crisis Response for Typhoon Hagupit

As information is one of the best tools when facing natural disasters, Google has recently created its Crisis Response for Typhoon Hagupit (“Ruby”), which serves as a hub where all those who can still access the Internet can stay updated and help others who have been cut-off by the storm.

The website utilizes Google tools such as Crisis Maps which can track the location of Typhoon Hagupit and locate evacuation centers, Google Public Alerts, which is a collation of streams of real-time news and updates from different sources, and Person Finder, a feature that gathers information through crowd-sourcing with the aim to help those in affected areas get leads as to where their missing loved ones may be.

Help others be in the know. Visit http://google.org/crisisresponse/2014-hagupit to inform and be informed.
