Posted by at 6:02 am on October 29, 2012

Google has updated its Crisis Map to cover Hurricane Sandy, with a view to helping people survive the weather event. The map can be used to track the storm, as well as provide regional alerts and other information that would be useful in such an emergency, and is similar to the Crisis Map used by those affected by Hurricane Issac.

While similar to the Public Alerts system, the Crisis Map offers a wealth of information about a specific event. The path of the storm, expected rainfall, cloud imagery, traffic conditions, and hurricane evacuation routes are included on top of public alerts, in order to give as full a picture as possible for storm observers, reports Engadget.

Google’s Android event was canceled because of the weather, has yet to be rescheduled.
