 A powerful earthquake that struck Myanmar Sunday, November 11 has left 38 people dead or missing and about 230 injured, the Red Cross said. Hundreds of buildings were destroyed or damaged in Sunday's tremor, which sent terrified people running from their homes in the country's second-biggest city of Mandalay and surrounding villages. Kaung Htet, The Myanmar Times' Head of Photography, visited the epicentre of the earthquake's devastation in the town of Thabeikkyin Monday, November 12 to find victims recovering in hospital and taking temporary shelter.
