As often happens during crises, Twitter is first to respond and provide updates about what’s happening. Here are some great resources to stay abreast of the wildfires in Southern California. Nate Ritter, public service twitter extraordinaire has launched Crisiswire, a site that gathers real time crisis information to help the communities. They are currently tracking Sylmar Fires and Santa Barbara Fires separately. Of course, there is the fabulous LAFD providing Twitter updates and also a blog.
Unfortunately, the Red Cross has just one update on their Twitter account that is 24 hours old.
The most common Twitter hashtags to use are:
Be safe, Southern Cal and let us know of any other good resources to stay updated.
