Las cifras de muertos aumentaban. El martes 2 de junio, los diarios titulaban que ya había 1.000 fallecidos solo en Huaraz y Chimbote. Las portadas completas estaban dedicadas a los efectos del sismo en el departamento de Ancash. Se mencionaban las huellas de “un aluvión” en las localidades de Huallanca y Caraz, las que “se salvaron providencialmente” de la catástrofe. Se relataba que había “daños parciales”. Pero nada de Yungay.
“80 paracaidistas se lanzarán hoy sobre Huaraz”, “Casi en ruinas está la ciudad de Huaraz”, “En Chimbote se han registrado 336 muertos y 2.500 heridos”, “El Gobierno dicta disposiciones para ayudar a víctimas”, eran los titulares de ese día. Pero nada de Yungay.
The amount of death people increased. On Tuesday, June 2, the newspapers titled that there were already 1,000 dead only in Huaraz and Chimbote. The full covers of news were dedicated to the consequences of the earthquake in the department of Ancash. The traces of "a flood" were mentioned in the localities of Huallanca and Caraz, which "were providentially saved" from the catastrophe. It was reported that there were "partial damages". But nothing about Yungay.
"80 parachuters will be launched today on Huaraz", "Almost in ruins, the city of Huaraz", "In Chimbote there have been 336 deaths and 2,500 injured", "The Government sends provisions to help victims", were the titles on news that day. But nothing about Yungay.
Con poca comunicación desde la zona, esas primeras 24 horas luego del sismo fueron de largos silencios y mucha incertidumbre. Nadie podía saber la dimensión de los hechos. El Gobierno, entonces, organizó comitivas de apoyo vía terrestre o por mar en buques. Las primeras toneladas de ayuda intentaban ser llevadas hasta las zonas más golpeadas. Incluso se utilizaron en esas primeras horas a paracaidistas que llevaron medicinas y alimentos; en otras ocasiones arrojaban los paquetes de ayuda a la periferia de las zonas de desastre.
With very few communication from the area, those first 24 hours after the earthquake were long silences and a lot of uncertainty. No one could know what really happened. The Government, then, organized support groups by land o. And air. The first tons of help were taken to the worst hit areas. Even parachutists were used to carry medicines and food in the first hours; later as people needed more, airplanes started to throw the aid packages to the periphery of the disaster areas next to Yungay.
Koh Nang Yuan. A beautiful tiny island just off the coast of Koh Tao. This is one of the most famous locations in Thailand. You have to pay to get on the island but it is definitely worth the 200 Baht fee. It was so good to see how the locals of Koh Tao are trying to educate each other and the tourists about responsible tourism and keeping the ocean clean 🇹🇭♥️🌴
traveling adalah investasi diri yang mana ROI nya tidak bisa hanya semata mata di ukur dengan uang.

Bright sunny day in Kerala!
Last month as the rains played havoc in Kerala and rendered many people homeless with major landslides, rising water level of rivers, broken roads and bridges, the city came to a standstill. My planned trip to Munnar to see the Neelakurinji bloom got cancelled. Although I was disheartened , but it was nothing compared to grief of lives and property lost.
However I took heart to visit Kerala last weekend in spite of all the odds standing against it, to see the Neelakurinji blooms which happens once in 12 years. Many advised me against the impulsive decision but as I always do, I followed my heart. 😊
I was pleasantly surprised to see the state had restored back to normality with repair and construction work in full swing.
What Kerala needs now is support in terms of getting back to normalcy. With 20000 hotel reservations cancelled, it impacted the tourism industry adversely. The hotels, cab services, Ayurveda centres, restaurants, hawkers, local vendors, all took a bad hit in terms of revenue loss.
When I visited the only appeal I could hear was “restore to normalcy”. Hype and scare instilled by media coverage has further affected the calamity. With Tourism Industry taking a bad hit the middle and the lower income group people are suffering.
My appeal to you is if you have plans to visit Kerala, or had one, please do so and help the economy to boost back especially for the poor people because the floods don’t affect the rich that much, but the poor have to face the double whammy of the calamity and the rippling effect of the media hype and the fear instilled by it.
My contribution to Kerala was to visit and boost and promote their tourism in my small way, hope you all do the same.
Pro hope this helps 😊

El epicentro ese domingo 31 de mayo de 1970 fue a 80 kilómetros mar adentro, frente a Chimbote (Ancash). En Lima se sintió fuertemente (dicen que como si fuera de 6 grados), pero nadie podía imaginar la tragedia que enlutó el Callejón de Huaylas (Yungay principalmente), donde, según el Centro Regional de Sismología para América del Sur de entonces, el movimiento telúrico habría llegado a más de 8 grados, luego se confirmó que fue de 7.8 grados.
The epicenter that Sunday May 31, 1970 was 80 kilometers inside the deapsea, in front of Chimbote (Ancash). In Lima it was felt strongly (its said it was 6 degrees), but nobody could imagine the tragedy that happened in the Callejón de Huaylas (Yungay mainly), where, according to the Regional Center of Seismology for South America at that time, the earthquake would have reached more than 8 degrees, then it was confirmed that it was 7.8 degrees.
