Google’s Crisis Response team unveiled a resource page yesterday for those affected by the flooding in Jakarta.

Torrential rain on Jan. 17 caused massive flooding in the Jakarta Capital Region of Indonesia and practically shut down the city. Google’s resource page is available in English and Bahasa Indonesia, and it tracks affected areas, provides emergency information alerts for the millions affected, and updates with real-time data on flood locations and traffic conditions.

Google also announced a mobile page with emergency contact information and shelter listings, while enhanced search results on google.co.id provides direct data when people search.

“We’ve also included this information in our FreeZone service to reach affected users on feature phones,” Google added.
