The telephone lines are already jammed, for those within India, Times of India is providing an SMS service to know about those affected . These SMSs are being broadcasted on all the news channels. This can help you know about your friends or relatives confirming that they are safe. To avail this service from within India, you can send an SMS to 8888.
