UPDATE: Google Launches Online Resources After Quake

People Finder and Crisis Response sites now live to help Japanese community and friends find help.

At approximately 12:10 a.m. Friday morning, Google's People Finder link went live after the 8.9-magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of eastern Japan. 

About 7,200 people have records on People Finder, which allows individuals to submit information about missing persons and to search the database. The Mountain View company explains that the data available to the public may not be accurate.

However, Google has also launched its Crisis Response page which has links to primary emergency sources and utility companies in Japan. It also includes information about public transportation links and airlines. Google has also embedded useful maps to help coordinate information gathering efforts.
