    i have a very good friend in chengdu that i hope is ok. but its hard enough to get in touch with her when there isnt a natural disaster. i guess i will just have to wait until she replies to my email. if the interwebs are even working there after this.

    I heard that

    the 15th army airborne unit dropped some paratroopers on ground zero of the epi center of wen chuan area. They set up a com center. Rains prevented more paratroopers to be be airdropped.

    on the land, there are 500 PLA elite soldiers travel on foot to get into wen chuan area, since all the roads and bridges are destroyed.

    as days go by, rescue of survivors become more and more critical

    --

    relief supplies from Taiwan, already landed on Cheng Du. Ironically, the last time, the planes left Cheng Du for Taipei was among military retreat in the face of Deng xiao Ping, Liu Bo Cheng and Chen Yi army approaching.

    China agreed to Japan's offering search and rescue teams

    China did not take any other assistance from other countries so far.

    Good to hear you're ok Andy!

    Keep bringing us reports. They are fascinating.

    My school is O-Mei so we have a lot of ties to Sichuan. Master Tony Chen is from Chengdu as is our wushu coach Ding Wei. Tony's immediate family are all here already. Ding is trying to get his parents here now. I helped him with a letter. He reached them on cell phone and they are alright.

    according to the most recent reports'

    1. Army engineer corps are clearing the roads, and build some makeshift bridges, they are only 18 kilometers away from wen chuan, the epic center. once the roads are cleared, massive help will be arrived.

    2. Taiwan's search and rescue teams are going in along with search and rescue dogs or k-9 teams.

    3. 4 charter flights from Taiwan are approved, they will evacute Taiwan residents from Cheng Du.

    4. one of 6 guest workers is from Si Chuan. they are calling homes to see how families are doing, so the guest workforce or labor market is paralysed thruout China.
