It's very late now in China, but I don't want to go bed. I'm reading news about earthquakes in Sichuan province, 5.12 was a dark day in Sichuan, China. Earthquake seriously shocked everyone in Sichuan and we never feel death is so near.
Some news from earthquake zone
Now raiway service from Chengdu to Shanghai stopped due to damage by earthquake.
Local communication system stopped work that day, and it can not work smoothly now.
In downtown Chengdu, part of high-rise cracked lightly including our present office building and fortunately no collapse report.
Today is rainy and part of roads has been in traffic control.
Till now, we can still fell continuous aftershock, but the worst has passed.
Epicenter (7.8 level) is Wenchuan and Maoxian County.
It is mountainous area and all roads are collapsed, and salvation material and personnel can not been transported into these counties.
Regret to say, no real news from Maoxian County because of the isolation of communication system.
This morning some information comes from Wenchuan: 30% of houses collapsed and 30% of houses damaged.
This earthquake affects many areas.
Mianzhu County is one of areas and we are told over 10000 persons losed lives there.
No houses of Beichuan County stands now.
Torrential rain and powerful aftershocks yesterday hampered efforts to rescue victims of the earthquake
I feel so shocked as well as sad, and I just want to fly to the earthquake zone to help the victims. But I konw what I can do first is to remain at my post, and I'll pay attention on news about earthquake every minute to see what I can do. I'll contribut money as soon as my first month's wage been paid.
God bless all stricken people!!!
God bless all the people!!!
