Another massive Indonesian earthquake

New Earthquake strikes Indonesian Region -- Are we helping victims enough?

Sunday, April 10, 2005

Practically all of us remember where we were and what we were doing when we heard the first breaking news of the breaking Asian tsunami. It was December 26th and personally I was headed to Indiana for a family funeral. I called my husband who remained home and asked him to video record the breaking news.

Exactly one week before the tsunami tragedy, I had recorded accounts of meteoric activity in the same Sumatra - Jakarta region:

A week to the day later, the region was devastated by water damage that some commentators say could only have been exceeded by the Biblical Great Flood itself.

Since that initial disaster, a series of mind boggling quakes have struck the region that seem to receive only cursory reporting:

March 28th featured a massive 8.7 mw quake:

Today (Sunday morning here in Michigan), I heard radio reports that a 6.8 quake had again hit the besieged region.

I can hardly imagine the terror and the shock affecting what must by now be a numbed population. I once was in a 5.5 mw aftershock quake to the 6.2 Los Angeles area quake of October 1, 1987. That 5.5 quake was about all the earthquake I personally care to experience. What the inhabitants of the afflicted Indian Ocean regions have suffered is beyond my comprehension.

I say all of this wondering how the relief organizations are keeping up. It has been a numbing year in terms of disasters. Florida suffered tremendous hurricane damage last fall. I know the recovery continues there. There have been so many disasters and so little interval for recovery.

Are these disasters apocalyptic? I personally believe that given the confluence of other world events, that is a real possibility. Does that mean we sit back and do nothing? No! Are there people exploiting the disasters for personal gain? Probably. Does that mean we give to nobody? No! I am personally interested in knowing where is the best place to place disaster restoration resources? Do those heeding Matthew 24 warnings also heeding Matthew 25 ones?
