American Red Cross is launching a drone disaster-relief program #drone #droneday

Dims

Drones will begin surveying storm damaged regions to evaluate where the most relief is needed. Via Engadget:

American Red Cross will conduct the survey in one of the most badly affected areas of the city for a week as part of the first drone disaster-relief program in the US. This week-long pilot period involves the use of a Cyphy drone that’s tethered to a generator, so it can operate for lengthy periods of time, and has a 30x zoom camera to provide miles of visibility from 400 feet above ground.
