This week’s featured broadcaster is Peerapon Anutarasoat (Yo), a journalist for Thailand’s MCOT news network. Yo started using Mixlr to broadcast messages from the Governor of Bangkok regarding the mass floods that have so far tragically left over 350 dead as well as millions displaced from their homes and livelihoods across the nation. This is the worst flooding Thailand has seen in decades, and it is feared that it will continue for the next few weeks.
Yo says his priorities are ensuring the rapid spread of both information about the regional situation and requests for help, and here at Mixlr we are looking into ways we can further aid these goals.
According to Yo, the most trusted site for information is http://www.thaiflood.com/, and you can find means of donating to the relief effort here: http://www.bangkokpost.com/feature/charities/203275/information-for-flood-donation.
The entire Mixlr team would like to express their sympathy for all those affected by these tragic events. You can follow Yo to receive instant notifications of further live broadcasts here: http://mixlr.com/yoware
