  1. Hi Matthew,

    I’d be grateful if you could forward me a copy of the raw material you used for this update. I work in the emergency planning consultancy are and my experience is that this is totally accurate. Society has pretty much made the leap from looking for information from official sources to finding it from each other on social networks.

    cheers
