FEMA: Try social networks and texting if networks are congested With Hurricane Sandy picking up strength as it reaches the East Coast, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has tweeted some advice to those in affected areas.
The agency says cell networks will likely be congested over the next day or two, and texting or using social networks will help alleviate such strain on the networks.

So far, over 700,000 people on the East Coast have lost power, and for many cell use is all they have left.
