More on China and Myanmar

Reuters: The death toll in China's earthquake climbed past 13,000 on Tuesday and looked likely to rise much higher after media said some 19,000 people were buried in rubble in just one area.

13,000 in China + 34,000 in Myanmar (that's a new number, as of today) = 47,000 in Asia so far.

I also read that the Myanmar toll is expected to reach 216,000. The source on that was the UN, though, so it's probably, well, wrong.

Here's a video of the earthquake. It's pretty intense.
