Flooding from a monsoon has terrorized the Philippines, and Google has set up a crisis response site with related resources. This includes a person finder, emergency contact information, maps showing shelters, donation centers and the flood extent, and news and updates related to the flooding.

Though Google is often accused of being “evil,” by those who question certain business practices related to its search engine (mostly because of the company’s famous “do no evil” mantra), I don’t think many would disagree that this is a decidedly un-evil action from the company’s philanthropic arm,

In fact, Google has offered similar resources for a number of natural disasters.
