The earthquake in Peru was more devastating than I feared when I read the newsflash early this morning. Nearly 340 people have died and 827 have been injured. Thankfully the tsunami warning proved a false alarm.
In one of those moments that makes me question the universe, more than 200 people were killed when a church collapsed during a religious service.
Catholicgauze has a post up with a US Geological Service map of the quake and how it affected the region.by
