After the aftermath of super typhoon Yolanda (International codename: Haiyan), a lot of people searching for their loved ones online.
In Google People Finder, you can report missing people who are affected with the deadly typhoon which hit the Visayas region.
Two days ago, I tried to search for my neighbor’s family who are residing in Samar, but the thing is…no news about them. 🙁 I used my Google account to report their names so I can track down on their whereabouts.
