- MGH CSSA aids Sichuan earthquake relief effort
According to the U.S. Geological Survey, an earthquake rating of 5 is considered fairly moderate, whereas 6 to 7 is "strong," 7 to 8 is "major" and 8 to 10 is "great." On May 12, China's Sichuan region experienced an almost-"great" earthquake, with a devastating 7.9 rating. Millions of homes were destroyed, and thousands of Sichuan residents lost loved ones. But the members of the MGH Chinese Student and Scholar Association (CSSA) hope that another number – not the earthquake's magnitude but the sum of Sichuan emergency relief donations – will help to alleviate the effects of the tragedy.
