Google Helps Overcome Katrina

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 9:23 am

Google launched two new search features designed specifically for finding information about the hurricane’s aftermath more quickly. With the ongoing help of the American Red Cross, Microsoft, Yahoo and many other organizations, Google indexed a large number of public Katrina databases, including KatrinaSafe.com, which helps the hurricane victims to reunite with lost loved ones.

The new Katrina People Search helps people to search across all of these databases at once to find information on friends or family who may have been affected by the hurricane.

Google also built a special search index that only returns results from Katrina-related web pages, so you can search on any keyword and know all the results will be relevant.
