Peru: Earthquake Report

In the aftermath of the Peruvian Earthquake, I am blogging over at the World Wide Help Group blog. The situation in Peru appears to be worse than originally thought, as early reports came from the city of Lima which appears to be less affected than other areas. There is a giant traffic jam on the Pan American Highway, as huge cracks have affected the road, as have downed power lines. A satellite communications team, TCF, expects to be in place by mid-afternoon offering telephone, fax, and Internet. 17 aftershocks, ranging from 4.5 to 6.0 have occurred since last night's quake, which has been upgraded to 8.0.
