Also found via the NewsBlog, above: A homeland security blog has lots of interesting links on the bombings and security reaction, including one really useful post about how to use a cell phone during an emergency (London's cellular networks were overwhelmed today):
Use short SMS text messages to reassure relatives they were safe (texting not only uses minimal bandwidth, but can also route around disruptions in the network, since it's packet-based) and then get off the phone.
Useful advice for everyone to keep in mind when something important happens.
UK Resilience is the official government emergency response website and has information on disaster plans.
