The hospitals treating the people affected by this earthquake are now reporting numbers more than 1,600.


Most of these victims are not in critical conditions sources say, they just have no where else to stay as their homes were destroyed and are waiting until the authorities can find them somewhere else to stay.


The Country is asking for any aid possible as, "the survivors are in urgent need of food, drinking water, medicine, clothes, and tents for shelter."
