Anyone have quick info to share? I am putting together an internal communication and would like to include local info that could be helpful. Thanks.

Hi Dannielle! Yes there are a lot of resources that can help local governments prepare for Hurricane Sandy.
Hi Elizabeth - thanks! I'm trying it out now.
OK that's pretty cool. I downloaded the app to my iPhone and it worked without setting up an account. Strangely you seem to have to be in DC for it to fully work though. Maybe that's just me.
Where do those phone numbers go to, when you call?
You can actually change your setting to correspond to the city that you're in. To do this, go to "My Stuff" and click the little circle wheel at the top right hand corner of the screen. Scroll to the bottom of the screen and you'll be able to change your "current default city" to the one you're in and want to report issues to.
When you submit a request via SMS text and the phone number, the request is automatically populated in the service request database and sent directly to the city you're reporting the issue to. Let me know if I can help with anything else!
This is a great resource. Thank you for posting this!
