Abstract
During recent years we have seen several large-scale crises.

The 9/11 terror attacks, tsunamis, storms, floods and bombings

have all been unpredictable and caused a great deal of damage.

One common factor in these crises has been the need for

information and one important source of information is usually

web sites. In this work three new sets of web server access

logs are presented and analyzed, one of which represent the

traffic to the major news site, Aftonbladet, in Sweden after

the bombings in London, 7th of July 2005. The differences

in document popularity between the crisis logs and the other

logs are investigated.
