never before has there been two earthquakes one after another. as of this point there are 200 injured and about 400 DEAD. but its just for now. they still have to finish counting all the peoples family memebers who passed away.

It is unbelieably sad of whats happening to this nation.
To bad people don't care unless is happening to them.
and i truly feel bad for those people.
This has been an earthquake of great magnitude.

As of now the president is giving a message to the victims.
The state of Ica is in great damage.
He has said that they have had in mind of a tsunami to occur so he advices the people from the coast to go to a safer place.

I truly give my heart out to those people who do not deserve this. To the people who have no home, and the little they have is being taken away & not being their fault.
To the poor who have no family and are alone through all of this.

I dont think anybody undertands that the EARTH craked and opend up in the pacific closet to Peru.

I truly give my heart and prayer to all the victims

A terrible situation and sadly Peru is only one of many countries who falls prey to such natural disasters. It always amazes me how little you hear on the news about other countries. The 2005 Tsunami was the first foreign disaster I remember being covered extensively and properly by the News and media . It seems people care more about some so called celebrity's new haircut than the destruction wreaked on others, and the deaths of so many people.

Also it seems to always be the poorest who suffer the most.
I just feel so sorry for anyone who has lost a loved one, their home and businesses.
Out of sight, out of mind I think !

Yeah - we all forget that when a disaster strikes in another country, they don't get trailers from the govt. to live in that I know of. They are out on the streets.
I feel so sorry for any people who are victims of a major disaster esp. in a third world country. They must rely on foreign aid.
Peru was already struggling, I read in the chicago trib that it has a very high rate of child labor.
