Hashtags During Storms

Hashtags During Storms

For the 2nd time this week I am using hashtags durng storms  to track weather events. Earlier in the week it was for the Earthquake on the east coast. As soon as I felt the building shake with co-workers feeling sick from it, I searched #Earthquake on my smartphone and within seconds saw people tweeting from the South and followed by those in our area north about shaking. We then saw a report from the United States Geological Survey’s tweets. We knew immediately it was an earthquake that shook us. It was not our imaginations since we do not get earthquakes often in New England that can  be felt.

Hashtags for Irene

Today we are waiting the arrival of Irene and the wind has really picked up. I have been searching all the hurricane information with hashtags. Hashtags are a great way to do a search via Twitter or even Google+.  It’s the quickest way to get information as events begin to unfold.

I have found a past blog of ours to be very popular with tornado warnings today. The tornado in Joslin caused Cutaneous Mucormycosis resulting in 5 deaths. Something to consider when the weather turns to it’s worst.
