HOUSTON, June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Disaster Updates (http://www.DisasterUpdates.com), a disaster news website, provides residents and business along the Gulf Coast with the latest updates on Alex and the BP Oil Spill. The website is designed to provide one-stop access for disaster news, resources and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) help.
As Dave Miller, the website spokesperson, explains, "The website provides more than just disaster news; it also provides a variety of helpful web-based tools."
Miller gives an example of how the Disaster Updates portal can help a family during a disaster emergency:
With this website parents can have their kids track the path of an approaching hurricane while mom and dad review checklists on how to protect their family, pets and home from the storm and review possible hurricane evacuation routes; then, after hurricane landfall, the family can file their FEMA disaster application online and search phone directories for construction contractors.
"Existing disaster websites were either too specialized or too complex for the average homeowner or businessperson in need of quick, relevant information. To this end, the website was specifically designed to be more useful by families and businesses reacting to a disaster emergency," said Miller.
As the name implies, Disaster Updates is not just for hurricanes, but for many types of natural and man-made disasters, such as earthquakes, tsunamis, wildfires, floods, terrorism, accidents, and more.
Consider the website as a "disaster information portal," said Miller.
Miller concluded, "Whatever the disaster, you can get news and help 24/7 at Disaster Updates."
