I’m writing to plead with any and all of you to follow closely developments around Hurricane Gustav. Having witnessed firsthand the devastation of Katrina in 2005, I feel the need to share information and encourage folks to get involved in aid and other efforts. Below is a list of resources put together and developed by my friend Deanna Zandt.
— Volunteer, discuss, get updates: http://gustav08.ning.com/ (Please join us!)
— Gustav info wiki (what I’m coordinating, fyi): http://gustavwiki.com/
— Andy’s blog post: http://tinyurl.com/6oqh8d
— All kinds o’ widgets coming soon
Plus, 2.0-style news:
— Official NHC alerts: http://twitter.com/GustavAlerts
— (slightly overwhelming) Twitter stream on Gustav: http://search.twitter.com/search?q=Gustav
More on this impending disaster as it develops.
