Google.org Crisis Response and Public Alerts for Sandy and beyond

Google.org, the nonprofit arm of Google, has assembled tremendous resources for Sandy that I am bookmarking for current and future use.

Google Public Alerts presents a map of alerts in the US and some additional countries. Public Alerts information is also incorporated into standard Google searches and Google Maps.

Google Crisis Response has created a Sandy map with thorough detail and useful links (see this Google blog post for more info).

This view shows road status around New York City:
