Latest reports says the death toll is now around 12,000 with 100,000 unaccounted for. Rain is hampering the search and rescue efforts with rocks and mud slides blocking the hilly roads to the epicenter.
Donations are pouring in from home and abroad. Hebei, Shanxi, Liaoning, Shanghai, Sichuan, Shaanxi and Gansu, all of which felt the tremors, have given more than 47 million yuan ($6.7 million), according to Wang Zhenyao, director in charge of disaster relief with the Ministry of Civil Affairs. Japan is giving $5 million. Billionaire Li Ka Shing’s foundation says it will donate 30 million yuan. Residents of Tangshan, hit by a 7.8-magnitude quake in 1976, have raised 10million yuan. Companies like COSCO and the Wanda Group have also made donations. Carrefour, the French hypermarkets group that was recently the target of anti-pro-Tibet demonstrations, has given 2 million yuan. Beijing is also earmarking 2 million yuan for Tibetan and Qiang minorities affected by the quake.
The U.N. says its disaster assistance teams are on standby should Beijing request assistance. But so far, China is handling the search and rescue itself.
