Flood Map based on sensors if I understand correctly http://www.wnyc.org/articles/wnyc-news/2012/oct/29/map-real-time-flood-gauge/
Research Buzz is a blog by a very good researcher, that I have been following for some time, today they have resource page up for Hurricane Sandy, focusing on New York City (NYC), but is relevant to surrounding areas and for general info on Hurricane Sandy.
One handy tip quoted from link above:
"Remember, if you want to follow a single Twitter account via SMS, you can send a text message to 40404 reading follow username (substituting the Twitter account name for the user name you want) — depending on your phone it might be easier for you to get updates from emergency service Twitter accounts via SMS than via a Twitter application."Just a handful of the more general resources, from Research Buzz:
- NYT state-by-state report page http://thelede.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/10/29/state-by-state-guide-to-hurricane-sandy/
- Google's Crisis Map (I tweeted this earlier) http://google.org/crisismap/sandy-2012
