The State of Utah will be offering to house and support upwards of 1,000 Hurricane Katrina victims. I was asked earlier today to identify ways that our agency can support this effort. As a technology agency, I was able to identify things like telephone and computer access, website development to share information for those who may be coming here and teleconferencing and videoconferencing services. David Stephenson also offers some ideas about how IT people can help with Katrina (and other disasters in the future).
With so many dislocated people, websites are popping up to offer help and assistance.
