Central China Earthquake

CHENGDU, China A catastrophic earthquake struck central China today, killing nearly 9,000 people, trapping about 900 students under the rubble of their school and causing a toxic chemical leak. The 7.9-magnitude quake devastated a region of small cities collapsing 80% of the buildings and leaving 10 million in darkness. The earthquake sent thousands of people rushing out of buildings and into the streets hundreds of miles away in Beijing and Shanghai. The tremor was felt as far away as Thailand. There is fear that the overall death toll will increase sharply. We pray for all victims of natural disasters, especially those challenged today. Lord, come to their aid and direct rescue workers with your divine guidance and grace
