The toppled thousands of homes, trapped students in schools and the tremors were so strong that they could be felt as far away as our offices in Shanghai and also in Beijing and Bangkok.

Google and Baidu, the two most successful search engines in China, have both launched earthquake related sections on their sites to help the victims of the disaster. You can donate money, get up-to-date information, and pray for victims.

Google has created a news update with their Google Maps. A user can view news and see exactly where it happened.
