Google "Person Finder' for survivors of Super Typhoon Yolanda

Are you looking for someone left in the wake of Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan)? Google has launched a 'Person Finder' to help friends and families connect after this powerful tropical cyclone swept through the central Philippine Islands.

Search for the loved ones you cannot contact through Google's Person Finder. Don't lose hope, keep strong everyone!

From their site, you can search for someone you haven't been able to contact after the storm. Likewise, you can add information about yourself and your loved ones. The page is also available for mobile devices and currently has informational records on over 37,000 individuals.

Super Typhoon Hiyan (Yolanda) is a world record setting storm, with wind speeds of 195 mph. Hurricane Camille was the previous record holder with speeds of 190 mph as it made landfall in Mississippi in 1969. With an estimated death toll of 10,000 people, the loss in life is far greater than the 1,833 deaths from Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
