News: Flash Floods Snapchat Story on October 4th, 2015

Follow all the Snapchat Stories here: What’s on Snapchat Stories Today?

Hurricane Joaquin crushed the east coast this weekend causing floods throughout much of South Carolina and North Carolina. On Friday night and Saturday I noticed some Snapchat users had the “Historic Flooding” filter for their stories. Although I live in Chapel Hill, North Carolina I did not have this filter. After the filter went live I knew it was all in due time before Snapchat published a national story on the floods. Here are a few of the screenshots I took of this story:

I love what one guy on Twitter had to say:

“Insane videos of South Carolina floods showing how valuable Snapchat is at being a breaking news resource. Everyone’s a network cameraperson now.”

Exactly. I look for many more breaking news stories on Snapchat as we move into the future. Any time there is a breaking news event people are going to start going to Snapchat rather than Twitter and Facebook. It is going to get very interesting for Snapchat.
