standard Burma earthquake

The 7.2 mag earthquake that hit Burma 24 March has caused at least 74 deaths, damage to critical infrastructure and landslides in the northeast that killed 10 people.  Although most attention has been given to the far greater disaster that took place in Japan, the earthquake in Burma has definitely made a large impact on communities there, destroying hundreds of homes and damaging water supply systems.

Here are a few photos from Reuters of a road in Tarlay that was severely damaged by the earthquake:
