 There are a lot of questions for loved ones watching the news in Chile.  The most important: Are their relatives okay?  Google hopes to answer that question.

Google has launched the Person Finder.   If you're looking for someone, click the left button.  Google has more than 40,000 records of people in Chile.  Type in who you're looking for.  If that person's not in the list, you can add his or her information.

A map pinpoints the earthquake and the more than 90 aftershocks.

Donate to help the victims directly to UNICEF or Direct Relief International.  There's also text donations in place, just like after the earthquake in Haiti.
