Western China is still digging out from the 7.9 earthquake that hit on 5/12. Time is running out for anyone still alive under rubble. I can think of no greater horror that could come into my life than to stand-by, watching, as worker dig through the rubble of a collapsed school building for survivors, perhaps including my only child. Two videos are below. The first shows university students in their dorm room at Sichuan University as the earthquake hit. The second is an Australian TV update (as of 5/15). Locally Mercy Corps is collecting donations to help the survivors, see here.

Additionally, NPR radio had a team in Chengdu when the earthquake struck. They have the sound of the earthquake hitting here.
