China Earthquake

A 6.9-magnitude earthquake struck the Tibetan region of China's Qinghai province on Wednesday, killing at least 617 people and injuring more than 10,000. As roads into the town were blocked by a landslide and temperatures dropped below freezing, tens of thousands of people were without shelter and the death toll is expected to rise.

Islamic Relief USA, along with its international partners, are monitoring the situation to assess how best it can assist in relief efforts.
