Dallasites101 typically shares restaurant openings and local happenings with its 200,000-plus Instagram followers, but in light of this week’s storms and unprecedented power outages, the popular social media account has pivoted to address the city’s most critical needs.
Today, Dallasites101 began crowdsourcing information from its followers, asking them to report on what’s open and what’s stocked in their neighborhood. All tips are then compiled into an invaluable resource list for the public.
