Breaking News: Massive Earthquake hits Buryatia

"Just moments ago a large earthquake measuring approximately 8.7 on the Richter scale struck central Buryatia. The epicenter of the quake is believed to be off the coast of Aldan province. We are receiving reports of severe damage in Aldan province and in the east of the Sakhan Autonomous Region. We are unable to confirm the number of people who have been affected by this disaster as it is too early to determine. We have received reports from the Sakhan Autonomous Province that several small towns near the epicenter have been completely leveled in the earthquake.

Five minutes ago, the Devolved Parliament of the Sakhan Autonomous Region officially declared the entire province a disaster area and petitioned the central government to provide assistance. The Central government has acknowledged the request and President Rokossovska has declared Aldan, Normoon and Vograd provinces as disaster areas. After publishing the declaration President Rokossovska boarded a military helicopter and has left the capital city for Aldan province.

Already the 4th, 5th and 7th units of the Buryatian People's Army, a total of 75,000 troops have been deployed to the disaster zone to provide humanitarian aid to the people living in the region. The Buryatian Humanitarian Aid Corp has also mobilized 5,000 volunteers along with their regular contingent of 2,000 aid workers to assist the military.

At this time the government is asking all persons with family or relatives in the disaster area to remain calm and to stay out of the disaster zone. All roads leading out of the affected areas have been inverted to accommodate rapid aid deployments. The military is also expected to utilize air transports to access remote areas as quickly as possible.

We will keep you informed of the latest developments in the Aldan region as soon as we receive them."-Reporter

We thank the Kingdom of Cochin for their offer of assistance. Although we feel we have sufficient supplies and manpower at this time, we ask the government of Cochin to standby to airlift Humanitarian Aid into the Central Sakhan International Airport (coordinates provided) if the situation requires it. Our base of operations in the region will keep tabs on the developments inside the disaster zone and will not hesitate to contact you if we require additional emergency assistance.

Again, we thank the Kingdom of Cochin for their offer of assistance.

Signed,

BCNA News update 550,000 deaths

"In a shocking review of the previous death toll, aid workers in the disaster area have reported a new figure of 550,000 dead, 90,000 missing and 410,000 injured. The totals were revised after the military gained access to remote areas and a new picture of the magnitude of the disaster. At this stage, the military continues the desperate search for survivors and to dispatch aid and humanitarian supplies. The new estimated numbers for deaths associated with the disaster has been raised to 750,000.

To complicate an already tragic situation, a large aftershock struck the area measuring 4.2 on the Richter Scale. Minimal damage was reported near the Emergency Shelters set up outside of the disaster zone. The relief effort continues in earnest as the military vows to work every single hour, day and night, to rescue persons trapped in the region.

With the revised death tolls, the government has increased the pace of the rescue effort and has deployed an additional 30,000 soldiers to the disaster zone. Persons with serious injuries are stabilized at the Emergency Shelters and then flown by choppers to hospitals across Buryatia. This practice has permitted medical staff in the region to focus primarily on those who are in need of life saving assistance and who would not survive the trip to another hospital. Reports suggest that there are sufficient amounts of medical supplies and personnel in the region, but the Interior Ministry has reported a shortfall in the number of tents and blankets available.

When questioned about the situation, a spokesperson for the Interior Ministry stated that additional supplies were being trucked in from neighboring provinces, as well as establishing contacts with other nations to source supplies.

President Rokossovska, who spoke with survivors of the earthquake, promised that the necessary aid would arrive in time and that she would do everything in her power to provide the necessary assistance. While in the region, the President signed an Executive Order declaring 14 days of national mourning. With immediate effect all Buryatian flags across the country, and at Buryatian Embassies worldwide are to be lowered to half mast.

We will continue to monitor the situation in the north of the country and will keep you informed of any developments."-Reporter

Re: Assistance

Due to a reassessing of the situation in the disaster zone, the government of Buryatia will be accepting your offer of assistance. We will prepare the Central Sakhan International Airport to receive supplies from Cochin via airlift. At this time, however, we decline your offer of a Disaster Relief Squad, as we have sufficient manpower in the region.

The Ministry of Civil Aviation has taken all steps to ensure a smooth process for your aircraft to enter Buryatian Airspace and to bypass normal entry procedures. Once again we thank the government of the Kingdom of Cochin for their assistance during this time of national tragedy.

A regiment of RCAF Halob heavy transport aircrafts have set off towards Central Sakhan International Airport carrying several tonnes of relief materials. Two Halob hospital planes have also been dispatched to Buryatia to provide additional medical facility if so required. The 50 Halobs of the HB31 regiment shall be making a series of 4 deliveries until the current stock have been delivered to Buryatia. Further shuttles shall resume when more relief materials sourced from other provinces of the Kingdom arrive at North Kazakh Province.
