With the recent development of a giant hurricane headed towards the US Mid-Atlantic coast, Google has put together a Hurricane Sandy Crisis Map that predicts where the storm is headed.

Not only is this predicted to be an intense storm -- one that the mid-Atlantic coast hasn't seen in years -- but it is expected to bring life-threatening floods to a lot of major cities. Google's crisis map for hurricane Sandy has a number of informative features for the incoming storm.

On the site you can view the storm's current location, the three-day forecast cone, detailed cloud imagery, traffic conditions and even webcams and YouTube videos of the storm from various locations.

With all the technology we have nowadays, it is a true blessing that we can now prepare ourselves during states of emergency.
