Japan Tsunami: Google Launches Person Finder to Help in Relief

A massive 8.9-magnitude earthquake hit Japan this morning, which is the one of the largest earthquakes ever recorded (and the strongest ever recorded in the county).  This earthquake caused a massive 23-foot tsunami to spread over Japan, causing thousands of casualties,  massive damage, and hundreds of people reported missing.

In an effort to bring help to Japan in a time of need, Google has launched the Person Finder tool, which is designed to help people get information on missing persons or report information on people that they’ve found. Click here to access this tool from Google’s website. You can also help spread awareness of the tool and help locate missing persons by embedding this tool on your website or blog as an application.

    Great story!…I enjoyed the new info about personal safety & security.

    It’s amazing how technology (like Googles above story) can be used to help locate missing persons or perhaps survivors of a disaster!

    Thanks for sharing!
