Disaster blog tracking in the post-Google blog search era

Disaster blog tracking in the post-Google blog search era: If you’re trying to search (as Doc Searls calls it) the World Live Web, I’ve just discovered a feature on the new Google blog search beta is especially helpful. Using the advanced search feature, you can limit a search of blogs to the past hour.

For example, here is a link to results of the word “rita” using the “past hour” limit on blogsearch.google.com. Here is an RSS feed of those results.

Ice Rocket offers a “past day” advanced search feature.

The other popular blog search engines offer a “by date” sort, but I haven’t run across another offering the “past hour” feature. If you know of one, please add it to the comments of this post. Thanks.

As I run across them, I’ll add links to other “Rita tracking” blogs & media sites that are offering blog-like services:

  • Wall Street Journal’s Storm News Tracker (free)

  • Houston Chronicle’s Rita Weblog
  • abc13.com (includes links to reporters who are blogging)
  • Click2Houston.com
  • khou.com
  • Times Picayune breaking news weblog
  • Shreveport Times Hurricane Rita blog
  • Wikipedia’s Hurricane Rita’s entry
  • Later: An AP story surveys some Rita-related blog and podcast efforts.

      warning from Chinese prophet

      In china,people respectfly call Master Yunfeng “diviner”?”prophet” for they have seen master’s prophecies.they believe his super ability.

      From 2006 to now,Master Yunfeng made many predictiones include nature disaster like earthquake,snow storm,hurricane,events about policy,ecnomy,military,disease ,health,personal fate etc.in feb 2009,Master Yunfeng foretold prediction that“airplane crash/accident will occur very often in Asia?African and Europe “,it was proved frequently later;in June 2009,Master Yunfeng gave prediction that”earthquake will frequently take place in the world,especially pay attention to Europe and America “,it also was proved very often later.

      In order to prevent hazards,avoid scare and save people, prophet Yunfeng and his team members wrote letters to related U.N orgnizationes,to earthquake research and airline corporations ,to top executive people;he repeatly talked about airplane crash and earthquake;pointed out“every countries leader’s meeting”;he also once contacted one demostic airway corporation many times by himself although he is a merit for many years.lots of people do not understand his action, actually the reason is very simple: all his work because love and passion,because he loves all human kind ,meanwhile he hope them safe and happy.

      Diviner Yunfeng still insistly emphasized that”this is not the end event of my predictions , earthquake and airplane crash /accident still will take place .please continuely pay you attention on it”although his two great predictiones already were proved many times .what will happen in the future, let's see.
