Another Bridge (2008 China)  Rock slide (2008 China)  School Wreck

Nature's wrath has been felt again in the form of the Myanmar cyclone and the southwestern China earthquake, claiming tens of thousands of lives, displacing hundreds of thousands more, and causing severe damage to critical infrastructure, the extent of which remains unclear. On behalf of its 140,000 members, the American Society of Civil Engineers joins with the global community in sorrow over the magnitude of losses and suffering, and pledges our support for relief efforts in the affected regions of both nations. As more is known about the loss of life and destruction in both disaster areas, the need for more help from abroad becomes greater.
