How do you find your loved ones after a disaster wipes out their entire town? The UCSD Supercomputing Center is collaborating with the American Red Cross to make that process a bit easier with the Safe & Well web site.
The Supercomputing Center is hosting the web site that allows those affected by the huge tornados last week to either register as Safe & Well or to search for a loved one. As of May 8th, over 300 people have registered and they have received more than 13,000 queries from family & friends looking for loved ones. This site was originally created and launched last July for the 2006 hurricane season.
