You'll likely start seeing a fair number of announcements regarding efforts supporting the search and rescue, as well as the clean-up efforts taking place in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. Naval vessels are in transit bringing relief workers and support, ESRI has pledged their offer for support, and just today the URISA GISCORPS has also responded. In response, URISA is increasing efforts to mobilize the deployment of GISCorps volunteers to the region affected by the hurricane. The immediate need is for 5-10 volunteers at this point. These volunteers must have enough GIS experience to work effectively in an emergency situation.
