This morning, our thoughts and wishes go out to those who have suffered in the wake of the earthquake that hit Japan recently. The quake, reported at a magnitude of 8.9, has even caused tidal warnings for all those in the pacific area.

Google has set up a "Person Finder" site specifically for this natural disaster. This tool works based on user-fed information, letting others know of who you've seen recently. The database is continuing to grow as news of the site spreads.

Hopefully, the Person Finder will help many separated families and loved ones find each other. Every little bit helps.
