Afghan Quakes

A huge cleanup is underway after two earthquakes shook eastern Afghanistan on Friday.

At least 21 people were killed by the quakes and it’s proving to be hard to get help to villages in the worst hit area, which is high up in the mountains.

At least four villages suffered serious damage and around 200 homes were destroyed. Houses in the area are made from dried mud – so they're not very tough – and even small tremors can cause damage.

Some emergency workers have arrived in the area, but it’s too late for some. Villagers have already held funerals for the people who died after they got trapped in the rubble.

    "gphpgl" wrote:What is the procedure to embed video in any of my post/thread in the forum? Is there any basic code for it?Hello! That is a great question! I will answer it for you! Answer: I'm sorry, but Kidzworld does not allow videos to be embedded in a forum, comment, private message, chat, blogs, and biographies (known as bios). You may upload videos through the "video" widget on your profile though! The videos have to come from two places though. If you do not have the video widget, then go to your settings, click on "widgets", then find " videos" and click the green plus to add the widget. Once you upload a video (and follows all of the Kidzworld rules), then you may share it to your friends. Hope this helped! :)
