Use this app and map to get a picture of 2018 hurricane damage at the ground level.
How you can help? Sleuth the web for photos from social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) that indicate flood impact in areas affected by 2018 hurricanes and have a location identified (street address, neighborhood, town, etc.) and add them to the map. https://arcg.is/1Kf5XS
Use this Story Map template to implement a common geospatial framework and suite of templates for disaster response search and rescue (SAR) and emergency response missions. Interoperability between SAR and first responder teams is critical to response and recovery.
