Another Tragedy : Earthquake

Another earthquake has happened. This time, it happened in Central China with a magnitude of 7.9 (it was way bigger than what happened in Jogja two years ago). No wonder the victims surpassed 18000 peoples (and still counting).
The tragedy struck at 2:28 p.m. (0728 GMT, 0228 ET) Monday, was the largest the region has seen "for over a generation."
What impress me is that even with this kind of tragedy, they haven't asked any other country to help them, even though US is willing to help them. They have a good disaster-response mechanisms of its own and so far, i see them quite effective.

I wish that the tragedy will end soon and they can start rebuild their cities again praying
