Hurricane Isaac's Path on Google Maps
Google Crisis Response has released two Google Maps to help prepare for Tropical Storm Isaac, the State of Florida Emergency Preparedness map and the Tropical Storm Isaac map.
The maps show the current location of tropical storm Issac and its projected path. The maps also include a number of other useful layers. US cloud imagery and US Radar imagery can be viewed on the maps. The maps also include links to public alerts that have been issued in areas likely to be affected by the storm.
You can use the maps to view projected wind speeds along the storm's track, flooding forecasts and storm surge zones. The maps also include important evacuation information, such as evacuation zones and routes.
WunderMap and Storm Advisory are also both using Google Maps to show the projected path of tropical storm Issac.
