Earth Quake in China, seems the death toll continues to rise

China continues to pull people from rubble in China after a magnitude 7.9 earthquake hit EASTERN SICHUAN, CHINA. More information is starting to trickle out as video of the incident is showing up on the net. The first report I heard said that only 4 deaths were reported for a magnitude 7 earthquake. Know that the population of China is so large I was circumspect about the number. My first thought were about the Myanmar response to the cyclone. The government of China is more open than Myanmar but it is still a communist authoritarian government. However, quickly the number started to grow and either the story was too big to hide or China really is becoming more open. Those effected are certainly in our prayers.
