7.8 earthquake hits China
Dozens of aftershocks have been reported since the quake, which was the strongest to hit Sichuan province in more than 30 years
Dozens of aftershocks have been reported since the quake, which was felt in Beijing, 1,545km (960 miles) away, and the Thai capital Bangkok, 1,800km (1,200 miles) away.
Were you or anyone you know in China during the earth quake?
Were you someplace where you could feel the aftershocks like Bangkok?
Bit worried im about to get a train from Hanoi direct to Beijing for 50 long hours...! Reply to this
I recommend reliefweb.int for reliable information, its affiliated with the UN to help organize disaster relief.
Thank goodness the 3 Gorges Dam is ok. Reply to this
My heart goes out to those affected. I've gotten to the point where I can't even watch the reports about Burma. It's tragic and maddening. Reply to this
hope you guys are ok :-) Based in Shanghai and was at work on the 41st floor when it happened....clearly felt it, door of the office got closed by the quake, and really felt that the tower was moving back anf forth...we were all evacuated through the staircases and learnt about you guys once we were outside...
Getting involved here with the red cross to leverage donation but really hope that the chinese teams on site get as many people out of the rubbles, as fast as possible...tomorrow will be the fourth day after the quake. Reply to this
