Facebook's disaster maps are helping nonprofits deliver needed aid after Florence. An initiative within its Data for Good program, Facebook's Disaster Maps project tracks the geo coordinates of user signals to show trends in people's movement during a crisis. The Red Cross and Direct Relief are using this data to provide emergency services to people where they flee to during a disaster.
