HURRICANE IRMA: Don't Report Looting, Crimes Through Twitter, Facebook

hurricane News

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Local law enforcement agencies are reminding all to NOT report crimes through Facebook or Twitter. While posting that you would like a beer or chinese food to Twitter or Facebook may seem like a good way to pass the time during a hurricane, posting that there are looters on your street, or that you need lifesaving help, is a bad idea. Police and emergency workers, to put it bluntly, aren’t your Facebook friends and aren’t following your #TwitterFeed.
If you need help, be smart. Call 911.
