Already responsible for the loss of at least one ship, late-season Hurricane Sandy is expected to make landfall again tonight on the east coast of the United States.  The Google Crisis Response team has assembled a Hurricane Sandy map to help you track the storm’s progress and provide updated emergency information.

The Google Earth blog also reports that Google Earth has some great hurricane tracking tools available to you in there as well. By opening the [Weather] layer, you can turn on near-real-time [Clouds] and [Radar] layers, which show the storm gaining strength and additional information.
