Desperate Quake Victims Await Aid in Indonesia

Heavy rain and damaged roads were hindering efforts to help survivors of a major earthquake in Indonesia, as officials put the death toll at more than 5,100 dead, 6,500 seriously injured and thousands more left homeless.

This is really a devestating news. A co-worker of mine's girl friend is from there. Her village is no more than 15 minutes away from the worst destructive earthquake. Taiwan has already sent a First Aid Group on Saturday to the area. God bless them.

The Indonesian Red Cross site is here.  You may show your support if you wish.
