Google Search Activates SOS Alert for Hurricane Florence

Google has activated an SOS alert in the search results pages for Hurricane Florence.

The alert features a large red banner at the top, followed by a minimal search results page containing only the most pertinent information about Hurricane Florence.

This includes an expandable section of top news stories, a map of the affected area, latest tweets, and official government resources.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai confirmed this evening on Twitter that the SOS alert is active.

Although there were also reports of the alert being seen earlier in the day.

Google is being commended for this initiative, which is sure to be valuable for those in need of immediate assistance.

The alert is active on both desktop and mobile devices.
