Katrina PeopleFinder Project Metrics

For a loose coalition of 3,000 volunteers, we seem to be doing pretty well.

As of October 2, 2005, the database has 649,015 missing and found persons records. Over 1 million searches have been performed since it went live on 9/6/05, including 16,702 searches since Monday, 9/26/05.

We have a number of anecdotal stories of matches through the website and are currently working to make sure the PeopleFinder approach and infrastructure are avaliable for the next disaster.
