Facebook Safety Check

The Facebook Safety Check feature is activated for areas that are experiencing a disaster, so the individual needs to have an accurate location in order to use this feature.  If you are in an affected area you can mark yourself as safe and also check on friends or family in the impacted area to see if they have updated their safety status.
