This is quite smart.
Please send this to anyone in areas affected by Gustav who is NOT familiar with "social media." PLEASE DON'T JUST BLOG ABOUT IT! Many people have already left their Internet connections. Try to SMS a summary of this information to them, or call them.
If you have (or want to make) any media contacts, please spread the word so they can pass it along to local residents.
All messages received at the "gustavhelp" or "gustavsafe" Twitter accounts will be re-posted for public viewing here. PLEASE follow this public page if you are in a position to help. An RSS feed is forthcoming as we bring the site online.
We are now tracking these terms in our Gustav Scan.
