Social media is a huge resource for emergency agencies

In the last few weeks we've seen our fill of disasters, both natural and man-made.

All of it provides a reminder, though, about the importance of staying connected during disasters.

These days, agencies and groups like the American Red Cross are adapting to the way individuals get information.
