Google has been leading efforts to warn and help people affected by the earthquake in Japan. Earlier today they had placed tsunami warnings on the Google main page.
Subsequently they have updated the information to point to useful tools that will help people searching for friends and relatives that may have been in the affected areas. http://www.google.com/crisisresponse/japanquake2011.html
Google Person Finder
Google Person Finder is a tool that allows you to input the name or names of people that you are concerned with. You can also put in names of people that you may have information about. Google Person Finder is also very mobile friendly! Spreading it on Twitter would be a very good idea.
This tool is also embeddable. You can easily paste it into your website or blog.
This is a great way to make the tool more accessible and to spread the word about the Google Person Finder. I have embedded the tool below so you can see whats involved.
