Earthquake Horrors

It's been a very bad day. Reuters is now reporting that more than 9,000 have now died from the consequences of today's massive earthquake. We still have very little information from either Bangladesh or Burma. There are horrific photos here and a first-hand account from India here. The scale of deaths is almost beyond comprehension.

Compared with the horrors in Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India and Thailand, Malaysia has not been so badly hit. But still there are reports of at least 53 deaths mainly on the lovely island of Penang. You can read more about the Malaysian situation here, here, here, here and here. It's been a very bad day.
