This post is scheduled and not real time because honestly, I don't know if I will have power to write this live. I am not in the thick of Hurricane Sandy and I want to make sure you SEO geeks (in a good way) have content to consume.

Google must really love New York City, yes, they have a huge huge office in the Chelsea area of New York City - because they created this special map that shows evacuation zone data from NYC Open Data, open shelters, weather information and live webcams.

Google NYC Sandy Map

You can access the map at google.org/crisismap/2012-sandy-nyc.

A Google+ post shares some details on this announcement. The first comment?

Nice of you to include North Jersey.

Yea, North Jersey is getting slammed as well. But Google does have a larger crisis map.

Wish us all luck!
