Google Katrina Search For Missing People & Info

Google Hurricane Katrina Search is a new service from Google that allows you to do two things -- search for people who may be missing and search only against sites deemed to be relevant to Hurricane Katrina. Unfortunately, a full list of what Katrina "relevant" sites are included is not provided. However, a FAQ page explains more on how the service works, including how to get personal information out of the service, if it should appear (it will still remain on the source documents on the web non run by Google, however). In addition to the Google service, also see similar services from Lycos, Yahoo and Velocityscape that we've previously mentioned.
