Dear CCFA Members and Friends:
As we heard this morning with surprise that a strong earthquake of magnitude 7.8 (or 7.9 by U.S. Geological Survey) hit Sichuan, China at 2:28pm Beijing time. As to this moment, it is reported that the loss of life and property is termed as “huge”. More than 9,000 people died so far. We believe that more data are coming. We are closely watching the latest reports.
On behalf of CCFA, I would like to extend our condolence to whoever suffered from such a tragedy. Also, we ask all CCFA members to show support and offer help in whatever means for the people in that region.
Thank you for your attention.
