By now there’s no doubt you’ll have heard of the tragic events going on in Boston at the moment. The good news is, everybody seems to be chipping in to help in whatever way they can, even big tech companies.

Google originally released Person Finder in 2010 to help out with the Haiti Earthquake victims, and the company has relaunched the service again this evening, to help people locate victims of marathon bombing which occurred a couple of hours ago.

Be sure to share the Person Finder web page as much as possible, as it could help reunite many people. The service has only been active for an hour or so, and already it is tracking 2500 records.
