PostSubject: After the Quake   Wed Aug 13, 2008 11:44 am

After nearly 70,000 confirmed deaths and five million people left homeless (as of May 29th), the Sichuan Earthquake of 2008 continues to cause hardship across the region. More than 30 "quake Lakes", formed by landslides have flooded many areas, relief and supplies are still needed and the cleanup continues. (11 photos total)

Chinese officials rushed Tuesday to evacuate another 80,000 people in the path of potential floodwaters building up behind a quake-spawned dam as soldiers carved a channel to try to drain away the threat.

Majingxiang 'quake lake' is the second largest quake lakes formed in the Sichuan earthquake by landslides that blocked rivers. The lake is over 40 meters (131 feet) deep with water rising at 2.5 meters per day. The upcoming rainy days will add to the risk of the lakes. (Photo by China Photos/Getty Images)
