I'm submitting the above link for review. It's the UN's Office For Humanitarian Affairs. Thus, obviously not a USG link. However, over the years I've seen our State Dept's Agency for International Development's (AID) Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance present on the Relief Web site.
I'm submitting it for a couple of reasons;
1. This site has some new international map symbols not seen too frequently here. It's worth getting people exposed to these symbols. They are far from ideal.
2. The site has maps of disaster areas throughout the world. There is overlap between the UN and the US response - especially in the recent Caribbean responses.
