As Isaac makes its way to Florida, and officials urge residents there to prepare, there are several good, go-to resources for getting information about the storm:
Google's impressive crisis map for emergency preparedness gives those in the path of the storm a morphing view of the storm's path, as well as links to public alerts in various areas, Florida disaster recovery centers, evacuation zones and routes, storm surge zones and YouTube videos related to Isaac, including hurricane tips.
It includes an interactive checklist for emergency kits, a section to plan emergency meeting locations, information on how to stay safe and recover after a disaster, a map with FEMA Disaster Recovery Center locations and shelters, ways the public "can get involved before and after a disaster," and the FEMA blog.
Facebook is starting to ramp up with various pages related to Isaac, including this one.
On Twitter, you can check these resources for immediate information, with one of the main hashtags for the storm being #Isaac:
