BANGKOK — A severe earthquake of 6.8 magnitude struck a sparsely populated mountain area in the Golden Triangle region of northeastern Myanmar Thursday, but although the tremors were felt over a wide radius, initial reports of damage and injuries were light.
 
Buildings were damaged near the epicenter in Myanmar’s Shan State and villagers continued to feel aftershocks for several hours, according to an official with World Vision in Myanmar. But reports of any damage and injuries were slow to emerge overnight from the remote mountains and valleys.
 
The area affected is landlocked, and no tsunami warning was issued.

Recently in Japan
People around the world are still praying for the better and giving help to the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan. Now we were given another one.

I wonder, are we safe? Especially if we're going to vacation out of Malaysia? War here and there. Earthquake. Yes, lots of people have said.. It is end of the world. For now, I am thankful that I live in Malaysia although there are some issues that I am not proud of. Read the news!

P/S: I hate DIRTY politics!
