Right after the earthquake in Van, we offered our Person Finder service in Turkish. So far, 4500 people have been registered. We have now created a 2011 Van Earthquake Landing Page in Turkish as well, where we will share updated information about the Van Earthquake from a single source.
Through the Google Earthquake Map placed on the Van Earthquake Page, you will be able to see the epicenter of the earthquake and the affected areas; follow up on the areas waiting for support and their needs; and find contact details for Turkish Red Crescent (Kızılay) branches and disaster management centers if you are interested in sending help.
In addition to these resources, we will also be donating $500,000 to the Turkish Red Crescent through Google.org for providing support to the region.
