In the wake of the Christchurch earthquake, Google has developed a person finder app to help people locate friends or relatives from the area. A potentially very useful option if you can’t make telephone contact.
You can access the tool above or at the link below. A related useful suggestion from Twitter that’s also worth repeating: if you do get in touch with people and know they’re OK, put a note to that effect on their Facebook wall to help keep their other friends informed.
