Photos of China’s earthquake

14May08

MSNBC has one of the better collections of journalistic photos depicting the devastation of southern China’s 7.9 magnitude earthquake. The earthquake was so strong that many aftershocks registered near 6.0 magnitude. Photo number 4 is particularly artistic, while photo number 9 shows the very large boulders that were dislodged by the earthquake. The last photo, number 26, shows a scene from Beijing of people who evacuated from buildings waiting in the streets, 900 miles north of the epicenter. That’s like having an earthquake in San Francisco, CA, with people in Tucson, AZ evacuating.
