For goodness shake
The death toll continues to rise from the other day's earthquake in Lushan, a village in Sichuan Province - just "up the road". Over 200 dead and 11,500 injured (1000 of those seriously). Some people felt the 6.6 quake here in Kunming, though I didn't myself. We had to quickly ring the half dozen Lattitude volunteers who live a lot nearer to the epicentre. They certainly felt it, though all were safe and none suffered any damage to their flats. Bear in mind this is the same Province where 70,000 died in 2008 from a quake 50 times bigger. Fear levels there must be sky high.
