Following yesterday's terrorist attacks in New York and Washington DC a number of Web sites have sprung up to help survivors inform friends and relatives that they are okay.

The World Trade Center Information site at http://wtc.toto.com) provides links to a number of sites where databases of survivors are being compiled.

Among them are the I'm OK Message Center and the World Trade Center Survivor Database.

Other sites house bulletin boards for people trying to track down friends and relatives they believe might have been caught up in yesterday's attack.

The site also contains links to lists of confirmed fatalities.

However, the work of those trying to compile the list of survivors is being hampered by some people who are posting false information. ®
