May 12th 2008

Sichuan China suffers a 7.9 or 8.0 earthquake. Buildings collapsed all over the place but many tower cranes survived the shaking. I've only been able to find one that had it's jib buckle and heard of one Sun Crane that suffered a 10 meter crack. Given the size of the earthquake I'd be impressed if it wasn't for it being China and much of the information didn't get out due to people just trying to get drinking water and not having technology or even caring about it at that moment. Hopefully this was all of the damage but I suppose we'll never know.
