Facebook Activates Safety Check

Houston, TX (WOLO) —If you have been unsuccessfully attempting to reach family and friends in the Texas area ravished  by Hurricane Harvey, you’re not alone.
In many cases phone lines are inoperable, and power is out leaving few options for people to let their loved ones know they are alright.

Facebook is trying to help change that by connecting families by activating their Facebook Safety Check.
Once you go onto the social media site you’ll be able to find out which family members and friends have marked themselves as “safe”. You’ll also be able to get updates, and additional information on how to get and give help to those in need.
