Following a massive 8.9-magnitude earthquake in Tokyo, Japan; Google has launched a free Person Finder to help people located friends and family who might have been in Japan during the quake. The quake was one of the largest ever recorded, and triggered Tsunamis over 20-feet tall, as well as a number of aftershocks.

Google’s Person Finder allows those in Japan to post that they are ok, and allows those in Japan and elsewhere to search for people that they think might have been affected by the quake. Person Finder currently has close to 7200 entries.

What do you think about Person Finder as a tool for locating missing loved ones?
