My name is Charles Martin. I am a volunteer with the American Red Cross
Bay Area. When working Disasters for the Red Cross, one thing I find lacking is good
accurate information from outside sources. I developed this site as a forerunner to
a site that was to be developed later by the American Red Cross Bay Area. They
chose to do their own typical Red Cross site. I chose to keep this information available
to all. This area was developed based on the kind of information I need, and having a
focal point to get it. I have searched for sources of information that will be constantly
updated, having multiple sources for the same type of information, so the information is
accurate. There are Local, State and National links so information comes from different
prospectives. I have tried to maintain Maps and Graphics, "A picture
is better than a thousand words" and I hate to type. An earthquake may
cause roadways to be shutdown, thus the links to traffic. During a flood you need links to

Disaster Information when you need it.
I have since moved to Austin, Texas. I still feel an obligation to the people of the Bay Area that have bookmarked my site for Disaster Information. I know this because everytime the earth moves my site still gets hundreds of hits. Therefore I will leave my Disaster page available even now that I am not there. It is constantly updated so you will always have the Best Information.
