Google does a pretty awesome job of offering up resources when natural disasters strike. In case you weren’t aware, there is a tropical storm named Isaac on its way to Florida.

The Crisis Response team at Google has updated the emergency preparedness page for Florida, here:

The team is working on updates as it learns more, and this is a page you should bookmark if you’re in or around the path of the storm, or know someone who is.

Using its massive amounts of data and resources to keep folks informed during a time like this is a valuable public service. Nice work, Google.

Be careful and stay safe, folks.
