I first heard about the bad news in Asia when I was, ironically lining up for a ride called the Earthquake at the Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. My friend recieved a call from Malaysia. Once we heard that a quake struck Penang, I wasn’t too impressed since Penang had, once in awhile experience tremor but when we knew it was 8.9 on Richter scale, things changed. News on CNN about the tsunami made us worried more. Later on the same day, the US NOAA upgraded the earthquake to 9.0 but I’m sure everybody knows that by now.
The least I have to say is that I am glad Malaysia wasn’t hit too badly. The damage as I understand is minimal though the death toll is expected to rise. Yet, it will not be as close as the terrible figure both Indonesia and India are suffering.
I checked my mail just now and the Environmental Justice seems to be trying to do something for the tsunami victims. (Wrong info)
Aight, going to see the Caribbean tomorrow. There is nothing more I can say. Even if I want too, I need to be back in Michigan.
