The American Red Cross has setup a Safe and Well List that people can use to let their loved ones know they are OK in the case of a major emergency.

Concerned family and friends can search the list of those who have registered themselves as ??safe and well.?? The results of a successful search will display a loved one??s First Name, Last Name, an ??As of Date??, and the ??safe and well?? messages selected.?

Hopefully in the event of calamity you’ll be able to access the Internet (or even a computer) and hoaxers won’t put in false names. A good way to quickly relieve the people you care about. Also, an update number of recent posts is displayed so you know if there has been any new updates. [via Lifehacker]
