Cyclone at Myanmar & Earthquake at Si-Chuan

Lately, a string of unfortunate events occurred one after another. It was merely a moment ago when a powerful cyclone swept through Myanmar. Its death toll climbed to at least ten over thousand of people and left thirty over thousand people gone missing. In less than two weeks, Si-Chuan in China, was struck with a high-magnitude earthquake.

Villagers of Myanmar scrabble to survive amid the dead bodies in the flooded city. Flooding of paddies caused a rice shortage in the country. Taking away Myanmar’s rice bowl has further added to the woes of the population. Although the impact of this disaster was not as great as the Tsunami, its destruction was indeed overwhelming.

Shortly, a 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck near densely populated areas in South-West Si-Chuan province unexpectedly. Tremors from quake were felt across much of the mainland, including Beijing and Shanghai that are more than 2,000 km away. The total number of casualties and the immeasurable loss are apparently still clocking.

WayOnNet Group, hereby, would like to express our greatest condolences to the affected families in the tragedies in Myanmar and Si-Chuan.
