China Earthquake: no major damage in Beijing
By melinchina on May 12, 2008
Many many thanks to all of you who sent messages asking if we were okay. We didn't feel much of the earthquake in Beijing, just a little bit of vibration. In fact I didn't feel it at all, but maybe that's because my building (Sun's BJS07 building) is new and has an earthquake-proof architecture.
The damage in Western China is obviously more severe. When we went to bed last night the death toll was around 50. When we got up this morning it's already over 9,000 and there are many more people trapped under rubble.
More later. For now I just wanted to say that we're okay in Beijing, and thank you for being concerned for us.
