Morocco Quake

I just heard that an earthquake struck the port city and beach resort of Hoceima in northern Morocco. Current toll is 226 says Reuters, but likely to rise to 300 says AP. There is concern that some surrounding villages where people live in ancient mud structures could be hit. The earthquake happened almost 44 years to the day after the 1960 earthquake which wiped out the southern port city and beach resort of Agadir. You can donate money for relief efforts here.
