3 May, 2010

Update:
A new post: #riyadhrain Catastrophe SocialMedia Guide to Save Lives, Ask for Aid & View Traffic..

A massive flood has just stormed the Saudi Capital Riyahd and Twitter was the first and only platform until now that broke the event before any other media.

Saudi Arabia twitter users are tweeting live from flooded streets with pictures incidents and emergency warnings.

Some of the tweets include warnings about which streets that are completely flooded and rendered unusable, other tweets dispatch emergency calls about the collapse of building at Amirah Noorah Female University.

With this event, now we can say that Twitter is at the heart of RealTime Media and is very useful for such a sad Emergency situation.

If you live in Riyadh or want to follow the sad events use the hash tag #Riyadhrain which is being updates every second, you can also ask for which street to use using the same hashtag.

ArabCrunch wishes for everyone in Riyadh to pass through this sad event safely.
