What's happening around the world now?  No, right now: this minute?

Agreed dear readers, we have indeed looked at real-time trending before right here in this very blog, and perhaps you could say I'm a bit obsessed with real-time news and you are probably right.

Going one up on twitter trending and graphing, take a look at this:

It's the ROIS EDIS real-time Disaster and Emergency AlertMap.  It's completely terrifying, yet fascinating at the same time.

The various icons (key) on the map illustrate natural disasters and accidents – everything including floods, earthquakes, forest fires, volcanoes, airplane accidents, terror attacks, etc. – that are happening in various parts of the world right now.

Hats off to The Hungarian National Association of Radio Distress-Signaling and Infocommunications (RSOE) for producing such a compelling realtime map.
