On Monday, the Oklahoma City region was struck by a devastating 2-mile wide tornado. Entire neighborhoods and schools have been destroyed, people have lost their lives and thousands remain displaced. Our hearts go out to all those who were affected by this terrible tragedy.
In response, Google’s Crisis Response team launched a crisis map for the event, which includes Red Cross shelters, traffic alerts, storm reports and other information.
To aid in both immediate and long-term recovery efforts in the region, we’re also making a $250,000 donation to relief work in the area. We’ll also continue to work with the many nonprofits and responders who are providing lifesaving resources on the ground.
