saw it on the news this morning.seems the poor people around the world get hammered be it from natural disasters to man made to diseases tostarvation/thirst etc etc.so sad for them...got to be tens of thousands dead looking at the shape of the place.
this is so awful..at least 100,000 dead the scenes on tv a few minutes ago were heartbreaking.
ive also read that dogs were agitated for several minutes before the quake hit..its either sixth sense or they can hear the deep rumblings before it erupts.
Let us know when you hear some news I hope she is safe , .
I wish the rich countrys of the world would give all the eqipment needed for these terrible inccidents Befor they happen , they know it can happen in these areas, all need heavy lifting gear and sniffer dogs , which wouldn't cost as much as bombs and rockets being used eleswere , i cryed just as i did about the tsunami , its heartbreaking ,
Just befor the tsunami many animals ran for higher ground its natural instinct for them , if only humans had that same instinct .......Diane
As if those poor people haven't gone through enough already. Having walked through areas in Duzce and Yalova after such a huge earthquake any news like this always makes me stop and think just how lucky I am. I still have the memories of people who were made destitute sitting in freezing weather by the side of the road huddled around a few measly burning twigs.
It's just heartbreaking and very shocking to see the devastation.
Shocking - heartbreaking - devastating --- cruel - what more can I say !!
Dig deep in your pockets once again foks -- every little £ 5 will help these poor people
Go without a bottle of wine or a couple of pints of beer for one night !!
