From CubicleBot: As it has done with other recent natural disasters, Google has set up online tools to help victims of today’s devastating earthquake in Japan.
The Crisis Response page provides a lot of useful information and resources and its Person Finder tool allows families and friends to post messages and connect with loved ones who may be caught up in the disaster. Typing in a person’s name will pull up all known information as to their whereabouts and condition.
That having been said, if you know anything about an individual that may be missing in this crisis, don’t hesitate to update that info in the Person Finder.
UPDATE: The Red Cross has added a donation site. Check it out if you would like to help.
