In the past 24 hours – well, 12, really, there have been two MAJOR earthquakes in the world. A 7.8 in Pakistan that has killed upwards of 325 people and displaced thousands more and a 7.0 quake off the south coast of Peru. The Peru quake was felt in Lima, 500km away and has trapped copper miners. At least one rumour has it that the quake has caused a piece of coastline to become an instant island but I can’t find verification.

And all we get from the US is Ted Friggin’ Cruz.

More on Peru here.
