Detailed Twitter Updates on the Gustav Hurricane consequences

Here is an example of type of detailed reporting from people in New Orleans and elsewhere on the consequences and the situation due to the Hurricane Gustav.

It is impressive to see how detailed information that is rapidly communicated across a quite large network of people. So the big question is “Have we any information if twitter is used by the professional response organizations?” or “Are these organizations even considering using this or similar services?” If someone got any info on this please update on this.
