Responding to Hurricane Dorian

Hurricane Dorian wreaked havoc on the Bahamas this week and continues to batter the Carolinas. Before it first made landfall, tech was helping people get out of the storm's path and laying the groundwork for a swift response. In the places where Dorian has come and gone, tech companies are working with first responders, relief organizations, and government officials to support the recovery by donating and transporting supplies to shelters and helping people stay in touch with loved ones in affected areas.
