As #WaldoCanyonFire spreads, social media helps spread word, provide instant updates, potentially save lives; Update: Spreading the word on how to help


As Twitchy reported yesterday, the devastating Waldo Canyon fire is spreading and more and more evacuation orders are being issued. Even just a scant few years ago, spreading the word would have been much more difficult. And people in other parts of the country would either be unaware or would have received only the most cursory of reports.

Not so today. Social media, particularly Twitter, is helping to spread the word.

Sheriff’s offices and newspapers use the hashtag #WaldoCanyonFire to keep people abreast of the latest developments.

Twitter users help them to disseminate the information. Still others report with on-the-ground information and help residents locate loved ones.



Twitter users also help people understand the scope and the devastation of the fire by providing on-the-scene photographs instantaneously.

This morning, journalists continue to provide full coverage via Twitter.


Social media is not just helping to spread the word; it is potentially saving lives.

Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with all affected.

Update: Twitter is helping to spread the word on how to aid those affected by the devastating and dangerous #WildCanyonFire.
