In the same time, Facebook fan page of Govt officials also asked to people to minimize use of data or internet after such emergency situations.
This is a worth considering advise now as people try to connect with each other through standard connection and instead doing short conversation, they keep lines busy.
One solution to this is that you should use groups and emergency alerts like facebook safety check over internet to tell each other that you are safe and minimize the use of other things like online streaming during these emergency situations.
