Google publishes Crisis Response map for Boulder, Colorado
Floods in Northern Colorado on 9/12/2013 disrupted or destroyed roads, closed schools and government offices, and inundated parts of the Boulder County and surrounding regions including in Boulder, Jamestown, Longmont, Lyons, and Nederland.
Similar to maps that Google has released in the past for places like Alberta and Moore, they’ve just published a Crisis Response map to assist with the flooding in Boulder, Colorado. The map includes information about area shelters, road closures, weather advisories and more.
If you’re in or near the affected area, this is a valuable resource to have access to. You’re also encouraged to visit the Boulder Office of Emergency Management, City of Longmont Emergency Information and the Colorado Department of Transportation sites for additional information.
