75 killed in myanmar

just a quick entry..

At least 75 people were killed and hundreds left homeless on Friday after a strong earthquake hit Myanmar, as aid workers said it could be days before the extent of the damage becomes clear.
Tremors were felt as far away as Bangkok, almost 800 kilometres (500 miles) from the epicentre, Hanoi and parts of China when the magnitude 6.8 quake hit late on Thursday.
Buildings were flattened close to the epicentre while terrified residents across the region fled their homes as aftershocks continued into Friday.
Myanmar state television confirmed a toll of 74 dead and 111 injured.
Nearly 400 homes collapsed in four villages and towns close to the epicentre, the broadcaster said, with nine government offices also destroyed in badly-hit Tarlay town
