2011 Japan Crisis Page on Google

Google has set up a Google Crisis Response page containing resources and information related to the massive earthquake in Japan and the resulting tsunami.

The most prominent feature on the Google Crisis Response page is Person Finder 2011: Japan Earthquake, which allows users to either search for information about people in the area, or to post information about people for others to see.

The page also includes a list of resources, maps, and breaking news, including information on scheduled blackouts, transportation (train, buse, airplane), shelter locations and much more.
