earthquake hits the coast of peru

August 16, 2007

Sad news. Peru has been struck by a 7.9 earthquake. The epicenter is reported to be in Pisco. For a closer look at the situation I recommend checking out news portal Living in Peru. If you want the no-nonsense, straight-to-the-news version, check out Brisbane Times.

The death toll has been rising. Last night before I went to bed at 1 am, the figures were around 50. As of this writing, the numbers have climbed to 500 and according to the United States’ scare news network, Peru could experience aftershocks for weeks.
