Thank you, Google.
Floods of historic proportions swept through Texas and Oklahoma on Memorial Day weekend and have continued into this week. Lives have been lost, a number of people are still missing, and property damage is extensive and widespread. Search and rescue efforts are ongoing, and cleanup has begun—but rains are still in the forecast.

In response, +Google is committing $300,000 in Google.org and employee support to flood recovery efforts in the hardest-hit counties of Texas and Oklahoma. We’ll continue to work with the many nonprofits and responders who are providing lifesaving resources on the ground and we’re searching for additional opportunities for Googlers from the Austin office and our Mayes County Data Center to lend their hands.

In both Texas and Oklahoma we’re devastated by the destruction but are inspired--and proud of--the courage of the first-responders and neighbors who have been braving the weather to support our communities. We hope these funds will help to ease the suffering of so many and to accelerate the rebuilding efforts in the aftermath of the floods.

It was a pleasure to host Boyhood's Ellar Coltrane and Matt Lankes at the Google Austin Fiberspace! I'll be rooting for them at the Oscars on 2/22 (6 noms). +Talks at Google
