Video Shows Sichuan Earthquake in China

The Associated Press obtained video shot by a motorcyclist riding through the city of Chengdu at the time of the Sichuan earthquake.

In related news, the Chinese authorities believe that up to 400 dams and reservoirs in the region may have been damaged by the earthquake!

The report on the damaged dams was by the National Development and Reform Commission. Most, it said, were small dams. The most seriously harmed appeared to be to the Zipingpu Dam, near Dujiangyan. The irrigation system in that area dates from the 3rd century BC

That city is the site of some of the most horrific scenes in the last few days. A school collapse in a southern suburb killed hundreds of children, perhaps as many as 900. Parents have begun setting up memorials and bodies are still being pulled from the rubble.

Another government report said that, further east, nearer the vast Three Gorges Dam, reservoirs had been damaged. However, there were no reports of damage to the Three Gorges Dam.
