China's Katrina

One week ago the quake hit rural China. The NPR stories have been fantastic.

How many dead?

A force of Nature. But unlike Katrina, no warning and then the hillsides and homes, shaken like being on the back of a dragon awakening. A science fiction scene of complete devastation.

How do people clean up? Where do they go to live. Where is the food and water?

What does recovery mean? Do people leave and move away forever?
