Yes, the thread was deleted.

Because someone put a note on a popular amateur radio forum, without going through the Amateur Radio Emergency Servce, the phone number posted was getting so many calls, there was little helping happening.

This happens almost every disaster.  It's not just hams doing it.  During Joplin's tornado, a fire department tweeted for help.  Folks in the adjoining States clogged the roads and streets so badly that, according to the Incident Management Team asked to respond, there was very little place to work.

This is IS-100 material.  Know your supervisor.  Send your request to the supervisor.  Ask what you need.  Need what you ask.
