Help for Typhoon Ondoy Victims

Google Typhoon Ondoy Landing Page

Google have released a landing page for people seeking information about Typhoon Ondoy, which has caused severe flooding in the Philippines. The site compiles relevant information about the disaster, including a volunteer-maintained map of persons needing rescue and a list of relief organizations accepting donations.

The Google Map is being maintained by a group of volunteer map makers. The map documents flood updates and persons needing rescue.

The map includes a form which you can complete if you know someone who needs help urgently or if you would like to report the status of the flood in your area. The information from the form gets sent to the group's main database for posting on the map.
