As Android fans may already know, Google’s Nexus-related media event was scheduled to take place today in New York, but the Search giant had to cancel it a couple a days ago, because of a certain hurricane. Sandy is thus the world’s first Android-hating storm, if you were to believe all the jokes we’ve seen since Google announced the cancellation.
Whether Sandy is a Surface user or an Apple fan, we’ll move to more serious things, as this is a pretty serious hurricane. And Google has you covered, especially if you live in one of the areas that are most likely to be hit in the following hours or days.
The Google Crisis Map on Hurricane Sandy offers various weather-related details to concerned Americans and the live insight into the storm can be a valuable resource for planning your activities during the storm – or evacuation trips.
In addition to covering the whole Atlantic Coast in its Hurricane Sandy Crisis Map, Google also offers a detailed map for New York City, as the city that never sleeps will be massively hit by this category-1 storm.
Google’s Crisis Map show various details regarding the areas covered including storm location, forecast track but also reveals active emergency shelters and highlights evacuation zones.
