Our hearts go out to those in Boston right now.
If you need to find someone, find a runner, or find someplace to stay, social media has you covered in the aftermath of today’s horrible events.
Google PeopleFinder: Boston Maraton Explosions: Enter information if you’re looking for someone or if you have information about someone (or yourself).
Red Cross Safe and Well: Like Google’s people finder, this lets you enter information about someone – whether you are in search of them or you have information about anyone.
The Boston Globe is working to make sure everyone has a safe place to sleep tonite. If you’re a runner in need of a place to stay, enter your information on this Google Doc. You can also check this spreadsheet for possibilities of a place to lay your head.
If you have a place to offer stranded runners, you can enter your information on a separate Google doc.
Finally, you can check on the status of a runner, and see their last check-in from the race, that option is now at the top of the Boston Marathon site.
If you know of any other social aids for those in Boston today, please list them in the comments.
