—Earthquake Aftermath in China


My Way News [AP]- China quake death toll could rise to 50,000

Terrible images continue to pour out of the region of China devastated by a 7.9-magnitude earthquake.  It seems like only a pitiful few of the thousands feared buried under collapsed buildings are being found alive.   The possible failure of a critical dam and blocked roads continue to complicate rescue efforts. 

My Way News [AP] – Myanmar cyclone death toll soars above 43,000

Unlike the government of Myanmar, which appears determined to actively thwart efforts to provide aid to the millions of survivors at risk after low-lying areas of that country were hit by a cyclone, the government of China seems ready to accept aid, and has been unusually candid in allowing information about the scope of the earthquake disaster to be reported to the outside world.
