If you're looking for an evacuee from the Gulf Coast evacuations, try:
Email. Some evacuees have access to the internet and may be able to check their email.
Text messaging. While cell phone voice service is disrupted, text messages are often getting through.
Online postings. Some blogs and bulletin boards have been set up specifically to help reunite evacuees with friends and family. Some allow picture posting. Here are a few:
