The natural hazard has cost hundreds of lives and made thousands of people to seek refuge in medical camps. Currently, the situation in Kerala is worse where people are facing the constant rain and flood conditions in order to survive. The government is carrying out the rescue campaign to save the people still stuck in their houses. Besides, the NGO’s and other non-government bodies are supplying aids including medicines, food, cloth and other resources. In the time of need, many big names have stepped forward to help the Kerala flood victims. Similarly, Google has also contributed with its Person Finder page to do whatever it can for assisting the Kerala affected people.

Google has created a dedicated page of Person Finder for the Kerala people affected by the flood. A small contribution from the tech giant that could help hundreds to rejoin with their family and friends in this time of sorrow. The Google’s Person Finder page enables the person in Kerala to know about the other people stuck at a different location in the state.
