Over the last few days, Japan and Ecuador have been affected by significant earthquakes. Hundreds have been killed, and many thousands injured or displaced.
Seeing the whole Natural Disaster Scenario, Google has extended some help to the people via People Finder. Person finder is activated in Spanish and Japanese languages, also offering free calls via Hangouts, Hangouts Dialer or Google Voice to and within Ecuador to help people communicate with loved ones.
For people in and around the affected areas, Google went ahead with ” Google Now cards ” with critical crisis-related information like missing person resources, safety zones, and aftershock safety tips. Google has also made the same information available on search for earthquake-related searches. In Japan, Google has launched a landing page and crisis map showing accessible roads and places where people can get disaster resources like fresh water. In Ecuador, Google has updated Waze with more than 90 safe place locations, including local shelter information.
