      This is one I have been thinking about, it is very worrying to see so many natural disasters and especially to this extent. This is the 2nd major one that I know of this year after the Tsunami in Japan which was devastating.

      Wow! That is too many :( it was quite upsetting watching the news coverage of this yesterday on Sky News, women curled over on their knee's screaming, so shocking :(

      My husband has an Aunt who lives in Turkey, even though she lives in south Turkey we were worried when we first heard about the earthquake. We were all trying to get in touch with her but communications were down. Finally got a call and she and her husband are fine. But I have to agree with the above post, there has been several natural disasters this year, I'm ready for them to stop.
