Breaking News geared up for Sandy

As a devastating storm nears landfall in the Northeastern US, Breaking News has staffed up to provide expanded real-time coverage, 24 hours a day.  A storm of this magnitude – stretching across several states and hundreds of local media companies and government agencies – will produce an avalanche of information.   Our editors are monitoring these sources in real time, and we’re filtering and publishing the most important reports as they’re made available.  We’re also sharing the most impactful eyewitness photos and videos we discover and verify via social media.

While @breakingnews on Twitter will share the major highlights, we’ll be publishing a much higher volume of developments on our Breaking News apps and BreakingNews.com.  For those in the storm’s path, power outages are a certainty, so our mobile apps as well as our dedicated @breakingstorm Twitter account – which can be configured to send SMS messages – will come in handy.

And, of course, we’ll continue our coverage on Facebook, Tumblr, Google+ and our other social channels.  Stay safe everyone.
