Hurricane Katrina: Yahoo Missing Person Search Across Sites

Yahoo now has a Katrina missing-person search engine that draws results from multiple sites including its own message boards,  ICRC, Craigslist, Gulf Coast News, NOLA.com, Public People Locator, MSNBC, Refugee Connect, Hurricane Help, Castpost Missing Persons, Operation Get-InTouch and CNN.

I knew this was in the works but wasn’t sure when it actually would be usable. A big thank you to the people at Yahoo who gave up their holiday to make it work.
