Find ways to help those affected by Tropical Storm Ketsana

As they often do after a natural disaster, Google is doing what it can to help those affected. In this case, they’ve set up various pages to give you quick access to information to help those affected by Tropical Storm Ketsana (named “Ondoy” locally) last weekend, which killed nearly 300 people, left dozens missing, and thousands without shelter.
