Google is helping people combat the negative effects of climate change, including extreme weather patterns such as wildfires and floods, by developing tracking systems for these natural disasters.

On Wednesday, Google added new features to its flood and wildfire tracking services that expand the scope of who can use it and what it does.

Google’s wildfire tracking system has already covered more than 30 big wildfire events in the US and Canada in real time, helping alert both community members and firefighting teams, with over seven million views, according to a blog post.
