    At least 8 of the dead are young children. RIP.

    2016 has been such a bad year all-around I'll be glad to see the end of it.

    I think everyone is ready for this year to be over. Wildfires, warehouse fires, earthquakes...hasn't been a great couple of weeks.

    Frantic rescue efforts in Indonesia as earthquake kills at least 97

    The province's disaster mitigation agency said more than 600 people were injured. The national disaster agency said some 245 buildings were seriously damaged or destroyed, mostly in Pidie Jaya, including 14 mosques. The rest were mainly dwellings and shop houses. Roads also cracked and power poles toppled over.

    [...]

    Muhammad Reza Faisal, director of the general hospital in Pidie Jaya, said the facility was overwhelmed with the numbers of injured and many people were being treated in tents pitched on its grounds. He said five of the quake victims died at the hospital.

    The death toll is currently at 102 (that I have seen). I hope it doesn't continue rising, but rescuers are still searching the rubble.
