Airbnb helps evacuees find free housing

Airbnb, the online rental housing app, is linking its members with Hurricane Matthew evacuees by giving them a free place to wait out the storm via its Disaster Response Program

The idea arose in 2012 in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, and has grown into a global disaster response initiative on Airbnb. This is the first time the service has been activated before a storm strikes.

The service has been activated in Florida and South Carolina through Oct. 12.
