[Public Awareness] Italy’s Earthquake


I know this is a BigBang Fansite but then lets just step back from BigBang news and take a 5 mins break  and ponder what is happening to the world lately.

Most you have read the news about Italy’s earthquake which being said as Italy’s worst or deadliest earthquake in nearly three decades. With 6.3 magnitude quake struck early Monday (April 6th) in L’Aquila and several towns in central Italy.

The death toll in Italy’s quake has risen to 250 (and still counting) and the strong aftershocks have cause further fear among residents sheltered in tent camps. Rescue teams continued searching through the debris for survivors, the homeless emerged from their tents after spending a second night in chilly mountain temperatures.

About 1500 people injured and 100 were in serious condition. Also, 15,000 people who had been left homeless by the earthquake would be accommodated in 20 tent camps equipped with field kitchens.  The number of homeless people are still increasing as we speak and yet the tent camps arent enough to accomodate all with the given weather condition.

Condolences to the unfortunate ones. Our thoughts go out to everyone especially to our readers who have families/friends there!
