Facebook Disaster Message Board Being Tested In Japan [penn-olson.com]

So I noticed something interesting when I logged into Facebook today. I'm in Japan, and it seems that the social network has added a Disaster Message Board [facebook.com], which it is testing today and tomorrow (see the notification below). So for example, in the event of a disaster like last year's earthquake and tsunami, you can check on the safety of your friends.

This is the first I've heard - I'm surprised this hasn't got more attention, an excellent idea.
