Because my blog is seen around the world, and I have readers who may have friends and family in Japan. I thought I would post this Google Crisis Response website which may be useful to you if you are looking for someone or have information about someone.
There is a box with the title “Person Finder: 2011 Japan Earthquake” and it allows you to search for someone or enter information about someone.
I don’t endorse this website in any way and cannot attest to the accuracy of the information contained in it. Use at your own discretion.
Best of luck to you!
