Sandy lived up to the hype and extensive rescue and recovery operations are underway this morning. I have updated the Hurricane Sandy Monitor to reflect this and to better track the relief effort. The monitor now tracks:
- Hurricane Sandy – Any mention of the storm.
- Power Issues – Around 7 million people are without electricity this morning and may be so for many days.
- Disaster Relief – Discussions about the relief effort.
- Donations Needed – Calls for assistance and support.
- Casualties – Deaths and injuries related to the storm.
- Damage – Any discussions about flooded areas, fires, etc.
- Videos/Photos – Media related to the storm.
You can launch the monitor from the Covert Contact demo site by clicking on the big green button below:
