In this paper we propose the creation of a portal for Community Networks. This portal, in the traditional context of a Community Network, would support the social interaction between the members of a community. Additionally, this portal would also have many features that can be used in times of crisis or natural disaster to help in communication and coordination between members of the communities, local authorities and various other federal and state entities. This portal should, in real time, help disseminate information about the plans, programs and outcomes of evacuations and at the same time help maintain a certain level of efficiency in the supply chain of the affected areas.
