Improving Public Alerts for hurricane season

With the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina in mind, we've launched some improvements to weather forecasts and Public Alerts in Google Search to track storms during this year's U.S. hurricane season. Now, when you search the web for information about particular storms or tornadoes, you may see:

* A map showing your location in relation to the oncoming storm
* Visualizations of its forecasted track, wind severity and arrival time, courtesy of NOAA
* Concise instructions for preparing and staying safe, customized for the estimated intensity of the storm and its arrival time relative to your location, from FEMA and ready.gov

This could easily be expanded into the logical next step of being a hub through which volunteers provide and coordinate aid during recovery. Such work has been done before with existing software and with great success, but it can't work as well as it should because it lacks the network capacity that Google Crisis Response could provide.

We're tracking flooding in Myanmar. The same clouds that brought the rains make it hard to get clear photography; here are the first photos. http://goo.gl/feM7Kd

The Crisis Response team has activated for the magnitude 7.7 Nepal Earthquake, and we've launched a Person Finder instance for the event which you can use to help track missing and displaced persons from the quake.

We're monitoring the refugee situation in Europe and evaluating a range of responses. We appreciate the compassion and concern that has led many to ask us to launch a Person Finder instance; out of concern for the safety of the displaced, we have decided not to do so at the present time.

Call loved ones in Nepal for 1 cent per minute

To help people communicate with friends and loved ones in Nepal, we’re reducing the cost of calls through Google Voice into the country for the next week from 19 cents to 1 cent (that’s 0.01 USD, with similar cost in other supported currencies) per minute.  We chose 1 cent, instead of making calls free, to prevent spammers from abusing our systems and possibly adding more load to the already stretched Nepalese telephone network.

If you don’t have a Google Voice number, you can make calls at this reduced rate using the Hangouts Dialer (http://goo.gl/Fxv5WK) on an Android phone, or through your computer (http://goo.gl/Qw7JZL), from most places around the world (http://goo.gl/teHdiO)

Already, people in Nepal with a data connection can use Hangouts or Gmail to call phones in the U.S. and Canada for free, while calls to India are 1 cent per minute.  Voice or video calls between Google accounts are always free.  Please note that telecom infrastructure has been impacted in the country, so lines may be busy or unavailable at times.

As temperatures drop and snowfall increases, make sure you are prepared to handle winter storms and extreme cold weather. Tip: If you need to go outside, Ready.gov recommends that you “wear several layers of loose-fitting, lightweight, warm clothing rather than one layer of heavy clothing. The outer garments should be tightly woven and water repellent”
