Frankenstorm Sandy and Google

Google Crisis Response is a project by Google which has partnered with government agencies, NGOs and commercial organizations that publish authoritative emergency information during disasters or emergency situations for supporting first responders.

Google’s contributions can include: updated satellite imagery of the disaster area, charitable donations to organizations on-the-ground, outreach through Google web properties, and engineering tools, such as Google Person Finder and Landing Pages, designed to organize and coordinate critical response resources and information.

Here is a live feed of Sandy, though I am also posting a screen grab from October 29, 2012 as I think the map will change with time.
