It is reported that there are no communications or basic services in Pisco, Peru following yesterday's earthquake. Seventy per cent of the infrastructure has been destroyed and 200 citizens killed. With a series of aftershocks affecting the city, there is an air of nervousness and desperation. The city hospital is at maximum capacity, and there is a shortage of medicine and blood. Improvised outdoor medical clinics are tending to the wounded.
