More technology and the California Wild Fires

There is an LA Times Twitter feed that is dedicated to news about the fire and it is accessible via your mobile phone at this URL. It seems to me that this is potentially a very valuable tool to anyone who is truly affected by this tragedy. Those living in the area and displaced by the evacuations may not have internet access but one would assume cell access is still available. Besides your typical news articles, the feed is offering information about closures and shelter locations. I'm only seeing a couple of hundred people following the feed at the moment, it will be interesting to see if that number grows over time.
