Google Crisis Emergency Map Could Save Your Life

Google Crisis Map Data Layers

Who has used Google Crisis Map?  This map doesn't seem very well known or widely used or sourced by the public or news media?  The data on the map could potentially save your life especially if you are traveling to an area that you are not familiar with. Knowing the details of what is going on in that area can be incredibly valuable.  I don't think weather apps and websites convey this information properly consumers on a map such as: fires, air quality, tropical storms, potential flash floods, tornadoes, wind, hail, volcanos can save your life.  I would like to see a lot more public safety data added to this map like cell phone coverage and hazardous locations. 

Here is just some of the data that Google Crisis Map aggregates below and the source of the data.
