Google offers person finder for Japan earthquake

Google has published a person finder tool to enable family and friends to trace people caught up in the devastating Japanese earthquake and tsunami.

The tool can be added a Google Gadget or embedded manually in a web site's HTML.

Japan is one of the best-prepared countries on earth, being no stranger to natural disasters, and it seems that thus far the number of casualties is mercifully low. Let's hope it stays that way.
