Photographs from the earthquake
|Children and the Earthquake
Nothing is wasted. The concrete slabs that appear
to be leaning against the side of this block are the columns that used
to hold it up. The ground floor has been completely crushed and the upper
balconies now rest on the ground. The winch you can see on the roof is
being used by building workers to lower down tiles from the roof for re-use.
There have been many deaths when aftershocks have caused damaged buildings
to collapse on people trying to salvage material or possessions.
