BEIJING, May 12 (Xinhua) -- A major earthquake measuring 7.8 on the Richter scale jolted Wenchuan County in southwest China's Sichuan Province at 2:28 p.m. on Monday, the State Seismological Bureau (SSB) said, revising its previous figure of 7.6.

The epicenter of the quake was located 31.0 degrees north latitude and 103.4 degrees east longitude, the bureau said.
With a population of 111,800, Wenchuan lies in the southeast part of the Tibetan-Qiang Autonomous Prefecture of Aba, 146 kilometers northwest of Chengdu, the provincial capital of Sichuan.
Wenchuan is home to the Wolong Nature Reserve, China's leading research and breeding base for endangered giant pandas.

Xinhua reporters in many other parts of China also reported tremors. Reporters in Chengdu said they saw cracks on the walls of some residential buildings in the downtown area, but no building collapsed.
Telecom networks in the cities of Chengdu, Chongqing and Zhengzhou paralyzed after the quake. People complained they were unable to complete calls on either fixed lines or cell phones.
The water fountain at Xinhua's Chengdu Bureau toppled, TVs and bookshelves rocked, and books and documents spread on the floor.
An underground water pipe was broken underneath a viaduct close to Chengdu's southern railway station, and the downtown Changshou Road was drowned. No emergency repairs vehicle has arrived by press time.
The mobile telecommunications network remains in failure in Chengdu and Chongqing Municipality.
Xinhua reporter Hai Mingwei said his apartment was in a mess, with the water pipe in the washing machine broken and water flooded the floor. "Bottles of drinks were also broken and the liquid was everywhere," he said. He and his parents escaped from home and joined crowds of people on the street.
When the quake hit, Hai said the ground became uneven. "For a moment I thought I was dizzy and dared not walk."
Many parts of China, even the remote southern island province of Hainan, and Bangkok of Thailand, felt the quake.
In Zhengzhou, capital of central Henan Province, people rushed out of homes and offices.

Many said they felt dizzy and saw the ceiling light fixtures swinging back and forth.
In Lanzhou, capital of the northwestern Gansu Province, the quake set off alarms of many parked cars by the roadside.
Xinhua reporters in Yinchuan, capital of Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, said they felt their office building rocking back and forth for about four minutes.
A retiree in Leshan City, Sichuan Province, said in a telephone interview that a wall in her garden had collapsed, while a repairman in Chongqing saw the ceiling of his factory crumble and raised the alarm among the staff, who quickly left the building.
In Shanghai, people were evacuated from office buildings in Hongqiao and Nanjing Road.
No casualties have been reported yet.
Maowen, a neighboring county of Wenchuan, was hit by an quake measuring 7.5 on the Richter scale in 1933, which claimed more than 9,000 lives. Songpan and Pingwu in the northwest of Sichuan Province were hit by an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.2 in 1976.

Hampir 9000 orang maut di Wilayah Sichuan. Terkenang dengan orang-orang yang aku pernah bertemu di sana. Apalah agaknya nasib mereka. Adakah nenek tua yang jual bunga depan Hotel kami dulu terselamat. Bagaimana dengan penjual-penjual T-shirt dan kasut yang memujuk aku beli barangan kedai mereka dulu. Kedai mereka OK kah? Restauran dan kedai makan Muslim yang menjual makanan-makanan sedap itu ranapkah. Awek-awek Restoran Ginko? Ms Yuen dan Ms Jo yang cantik molek terselamatkah? Chef Ginko yang masak Sup Ikan pedas tu, budak pelayan yang hensem dan fasih berbahasa Inggeris tu...dan panda-panda comel...AKU DOAKAN MEREKA SEMUA SELAMAT...Amin

Apakanama aka Kamal,
Ada masalah dgn mp3.Boleh cuba ke www.myspace.com/dewanggasakti atau saya hantar melalui email sample lagu.
Di dlm myspace lagu yg bertajok Mabok Kepayang telah digunakan utk satu dokumentari.Itu arabic touchnya kuat.
Mungkin lagu Belayar ke Pulau Jauh sesuai kerana mempunyai rentak inang dan joget.Lagu tu akan keluar di dlm EP kami.
