Taiwan Earthquake

Well I spent most of today working on the effects of the four Taiwan earthquakes. I work in international telecommunications and there were several cable breaks on the cables around Taiwan. When I had some time, I looked on the net to see what the media were saying. I was surprised that only one news article mentioned the broken cables. What is even more unusual is that article was in Hemel Hempstead in the UK, which as far as I can tell is just a local rag. Here is their copy:
While a tsunami warning came to nothing, the quake damaged at least six undersea telecommunication cables, affecting users in Taiwan and South Korea, and was felt in China and Hong Kong.
So I say, bravo Hemel Today.
