Australian Disasters - Bushfire, Flood, Cyclone
When disasters hit, people inevitably will go missing. Sometimes this is just because they have been temporarily displaced or evacuated from their homes, sometimes they have completely lost their homes, and sometimes tragically they have lost their lives.
I have worked through some terrible disasters in recent times: the Victorian bushfires of 2009, the QLD floods and Cyclone Yasi of 2011. When disasters hit I create immediate Missing and Located Safe lists for people to contribute to.
This page also has links at the bottom to the tribute sections for the bushfire victims, to the pages for the floods and also tribute sections being created for the flood victims.
