Yeah but they say it could reach into the thousands as alot of people aint accounted for and people still trapped under rubble and collapsed buildings...

one of the directors of the company in our building has a sister out there and is still trying to make contact - shes been on to department of foreign affairs also. glad your sis and family are ok ery - it must be so frightening to experience something like this. lots of irish out there too so a lot of worried families at the moment. hopefully the toll wont be as high as they are saying in the press.

oh sorry wheelie -missed the part about ur family - but glad they are ok too

Was just talking to my mother again, my sister said all the landlines are down, she said everyone is shook there and there is an awful lot of damage. So people who are worried about tourists there, hopefully they just haven't found access to a mobile network yet (those are dodgy too).

There seems to be five Irish people that they are very worried about.

It looks like a fairly small town, very scary watching the reports on TV especially when the steeple came of the cathedral.

Glad your sister is ok Ery and Jonny hope your colleagues family are ok.
