I laud GMaNews.tv for this new project development in support of real-time collaboration and database access. I would like to share the wonderful news that their Ondoy Victims Missing Persons List / Database is now online. This is the kind of vital information that needs to be disseminated as quickly as possible and to as many online audience as possible. As you know, most people turn to search engines during this time as they search for their loved ones and friends affected by the onslaught of Typhoon Ondoy.
Aware of the fact that Google and most search engines favor blogs in their search results page, I decided to publish this here and link to the original article in hopes that doing so will increase the news articles search results page prominence.
They call this the “Missing Persons Database” or simply MPD.

Alternatively, you can view the Typhoon Ondoy Missing Persons on Google Maps here.
This map was created by Franklin Naval and maintained by him and several others, and makes use of GMA MPD data and other missing-persons sources.
