Japan earthquake today, Google helps with people finder

The world’s attention has moved to Japan today thanks to an earthquake, which is not only the biggest in 2011, but also the largest in Japan for 140 years. This has resulted in a Tsunami that has seen warnings issued from New Zealand to Hawaii, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, and Philippines.

Google has done their bit to help with this disaster, first they added a few lines of text on the Google homepage to show which countries have warnings. Then they have launched a people finder app for the Japan earthquake today, which simply asks if you are looking for someone, or have information about a person.

You can use the simple tool below this post, thanks to Google giving websites the chance to embed the app. If you have information that can help, please use the tool below or embed the code on your site via this link. For now our thoughts go out to those affected by today’s earthquake.
