Crowd-sourcing Quake assistance #eqnz

In the wake of the latest Christchurch earthquake there are many outside of the area trying to assist in so many ways.

Crowd-sourcing is playing a major part.

Google has a Crisis Response Page that provides a lot of information including a live Twitter feed.

There is the Google Person Finder service that was set up. I updated the news on one person I was aware of had been located and was ok.

Now an Accomodation Finder has been set up:

In the wake of Tuesday’s devastating earthquake, many people and families have been left without a place to stay.

Compassionate Kiwis are helping out. Spread the word and let others know they can offer or request accommodation here.

If you can help locate people or provide emergency?accommodation?for people then please use these tools to offer help.
