Hi All -

It is just drizzly/cold in Raleigh, but much of the East Coast is bracing
for Sandy. From an ESIP perspective, it is interesting to see (near)
real-time Earth science data combined with other information to help people
in the line of the storm make decisions. Here are a few things I've run
across this morning:
* Google Crisis Map <http://google.org/crisismap/sandy-2012> via Bruce
* Satellites' Perspective of
Sandy<http://storify.com/avoiland/hurricane-sandy>via NASA's Earth
* WeatherSpark Viz<http://weatherspark.com/#!dashboard;q=Washington%2C%20DC%2C%20USA>via
Jeff de La Beaujardiere/Ted Habermann
* Maps created by ESRI

Other mash-ups that you've seen? Other data that could be utilized? Are
there ways you see ESIP supporting disaster response?

*Martha Maiden Award Nominations <http://esipfed.org/martha-maiden-award>: *A
