The World's Matt Bell reports on the Chinese government's rescue efforts following yesterday's massive earthquake: the government has quickly mobilized troops and assistance - and these efforts have received huge coverage by Chinese news media.
More than 12,000 are dead in the Sichuan province alone in the 7.9 earthquake that struck southwestern China yesterday.
Rescue efforts are being stalled by rain throughout the region, which is expected for the next few days. China says it would welcome international help, but even their own people are having trouble getting to the affected regions.
When Hurricane Sandy hit one year ago, journalist Jen Poyant was at work in Manhattan. She discovered her home was under seven feet of water. And that led her to Asia to compare government relief efforts after disasters.
