Governor Dannel P. Malloy is urging Connecticut residents who are seeking to re-establish contact with family members and friends in Japan to use a special family links website.
The website set up by the International Committee of the Red Cross is used to help reunite loved ones in the wake of the earthquake in Japan.
The website Family Links allows people in Japan to register on the website to let their family and friends know that they are safe and to provide their current contact information.
Others looking for missing people can also check out the list for information and they can also register the names of loved ones to encourage them to get in touch.
The information that is provided by the website is available to everyone and free of charge.
Those with Inquiries about U.S. citizens living or traveling in Japan should be referred to the U.S. Department of the State, Office of 1-888-407-4747.
People looking for information regarding members of the U.S. Military stationed in Japan can use the American Red Cross Safe and Well website.
