More aftershocks...Prayers needed

I got this article from Google alerts this morning. Doesn't sound like good news at all. Grace is in Hanzhong now and Hope is from Baoji.

Aftershocks Cause More Damage, Keep West China Tension High
May 20,2008 by CSC staff

With aftershocks measuring 6.0 to 7.0 on the Richter scale recorded yesterday and this morning, the continuing activity of the massive May 12 earthquake in Sichuan Province has 100+ million people, in the provincial capital Chengdu, in Chongqing City and in surrounding areas in the province and neighboring provinces, understandably at the edge of their seats ready to run for it at the least quiver.

Meanwhile, authorities in Shaanxi Province, immediately to the north of Sichuan, passed on the same information from CEA and warned residents, especially those in the Hanzhong and Baoji areas which border Sichuan, to take strong precautions.
