Hurricane information center community forming

Over the weekend I got involved in a quick Yahoo Pipes project to aggregate Gustav-related volunteering and housing posts from craigslist. We may have escaped the worst from Gustav, but with other hurricanes already threatening, we are trying to stay mobilized to help in other areas. The idea now it to generalize the site into a Hurricane Information Center while still providing information specific to the individual hurricanes. If you are interested, join the Hurricane Information Center community to see what else needs to be done. We can reuse relevant content and add new tools to provide a resource for folks who will again be displaced by Hannah, Ike, and others.
