This is horrible. I'm praying for the victims and their families. There have been pictures on the news of people who lost everything and they're just stuck out there in the freezing cold.

This is such a horrible tragedy...it's so hard to even imagine the number of people killed in Iran.

If anyone wants to and is able to donate money to help those affected you can donate to the Red Cross by calling them on 020 7245 1000. That's the British Red Cross number, I don't know the details for other countries but I would imagine if you look up the ICRC in your country they'll have information.

Sorry if it's not appropriate to post this info here, just thought some people might be interested.

The city of Bam and it's fortress survived natural disasters for two thousand years. Though buildings made of mud and straw can't withstand time forever, those people couldn't possibly have imagined their city failing so terribly so suddenly. I pray for all those who lost their homes or their loved ones. Or both.

. Those poor people. I can't imagine how scary an experience like that would be. Hopefully there'll be some kind souls who'll let these people stay in their homes or in shelters and stuff until they can get going again. And my condolances to those who lost family and friends. Such a shame.

It looked like a truly magnificent city. It's a terrible loss of life, unimaginable, really.

Here here. Just awful!

Does anyone know, can we predict earthquakes like we can (supposedly) hurricanes and such?

As far as I know, earthquakes are still pretty unpredictable. But I know scientists are trying to find ways to try and predict these better.
