In light of yesterday and today’s earthquakes in Japan, Google has launched a new version of its Person Finder service to help people locate friends and family who have been caught in the natural disasters. The website is basically a directory and message board for people to post that they are looking for loved ones or to post notes to let people know that they are safe. First used in the Haiti earthquakes that struck in January 2010, the Person Finder has proved to be a reliable and useful service for those in need of it. As of now, there are about 3,100 records being tracked on the Person Finder. Head here to check it out or make use of it if you have any information about someone in the earthquake.
