Heroku Reveals Cross-Region Followers for Disaster Mitigation (heroku.com)

We haven't announced cross-region followers. When we announce it, there will be an announcement.

This is an internal feature we've been using for a while that we thought our customers might appreciate access to under the circumstances.

Given that there is a significant chance that AWS east will go down today, this seems like a useful feature. However since the platform is still only in that data center, I'm not sure how this will help.

How are people on Heroku preparing for the hurricane?
