  Abstract Information on the Web has become increasingly important in disaster response. Yet much of this information is redundant. We are creating a suite of electronic knowledge management (eKM) tools that can be used to reduce by an order of magnitude the information that people need to read in order to gain and maintain awareness of web content during emergencies. In this paper, we describe research-in-progress on developing these tools and applying them to web content from organizations' websites and individuals' blogs. Results so far indicate that organizations' websites and individuals' blogs provide redundant coverage of general issues and that each provides additional information about specific issues. By using the tools we are developing, responders and victims will be able to quickly gather an overview of general issues derived from many websites, then learn more about specific issues by navigating to a few websites.
