Hurricane Sandy is coming and Google has created a crisis map that will hopefully help prepare you for the impact if you live in an area that may or will be affected by it. The map includes multiple layers including the storms current position, 3 day cone forecast, river flood outlooks, emergency shelters and evacuation routes amongst other things. Many layers can also be downloaded as .kmz files for use with Google Maps as well. Here’s hoping that technology can help minimize the effect on human lives. Hopefully all Gadgeteers in the affected areas are safe and prepared.
