If You're Interested, But Not Interested Enough To Look For It...

Of course we have spent the day responding to concerned family and friends and scouring every news source on the planet for any information about yesterday's earthquake, incidentally now upgraded from 7.9 to 8.0. Locally, the US Government has mobilized Embassy and Military personnel to assist with the response and we are sure there will be many immediate and future opportunities to provide the affected regions with aid. The Embassy also sent around some information from the USGS which we thought might be of some interest. The aftershocks are still rolling in as are the reports of damage and sadly, the death toll has reached more than 500.
