A Graeta Bracazie (Newspaper; replies IC or TG)

Postby Bracazas » Mon Jan 27, 2014 4:43 am

(OOC:) A few words about this page...


This is the official Bracazie newsletter. Major events in the country would be posted here. The newspaper is designed to be a go-to page for the current events in Bracazas. I will try to keep it as up-to-date as possible, but I don't expect to put EVERY event on the newspaper, just some material for possible RP's or from developments in any existing RP's Bracazas is participating it. So, that being said, here are a few rules:

  • NO POSTING ARTICLES! This is the national newspaper, so only national articles should be posted.
  • NO TROLLING! A bit of a maturity would be nice (we do welcome some humor, so long as it's in line)
  • REPLIES are ALLOWED but limited to: a comment/reply concerning an event, providing aid in disasters, clarification of facts/questions/inquiry, etc.; all such documents should preferably be IC
  • OOC comments can be sent by TG, as well as if you want to START an RP based on the event, or if you want Bracazas to be involved in an RP that can be related to an article, and if you have any other questions. Again, this is NOT an RP thread to play out events; this is a newspaper

I do hold the right to edit these rules along with any other articles in the newspaper, although it would probably be a rare occurence. Questions? TG or leave an IC reply. If you want to have formal relations with my country, the "Diplomatic Missions" spoiler in my signature should take you to my embassy page. Otherwise, enjoy the thread!

20,000 Deaths and Counting

Pondi, Jazra - At approximately 2:43AM this morning, a magnitude 7.2 earthquake sent shock waves throughout the province of Jazra and some parts of Traz and Salge. The earthquake's epicenter was determined to be just a few kilometers southeast of Jazra Volcano. It triggered mudslides in the city of Kludz (pop. 350,000) and the settlement of Smougka (pop. 7,000), killing a total of 36,378 people, the death toll still rising steadily. King Tsivir Peirada IV of Jazra spoke at a press conference today and asked his people and the national government for help. "We are doing everything we can to provide relief to the victims. Provincial soldiers have been sent to the city and are currently conducting a citywide search-and-rescue mission. We've already set-up a few temporary clinics and pantries," King Tsivir announced. "However, we are in dire need of basic resources such as food, blankets, clothing, medicine, and especially clean water. My soldiers are digging out survivors one by one, but we simply don't have enough manpower."

The mudslides were caused by water saturating the soil, causing it to become heavy and begin to slide. The water came from the heavy rains brought on by this year's storm season. In Kludz as well as in Smougka, tracks of land from the surrounding mountains slid down to the buidings below, covering some parts of the area with over 10 meters of mud. Local authorities have set up evacuation and relief centers in schools, gymnasiums, and other public buildings. 10,000 provincial troops were mobilized by Jazra. As many as 47,000 families have been affected by this tragedy, almost 79,000 people. At least 30,000 more are confirmed missing as people continue to search for survivors in the rubble. The high death toll is associated with the time of the event because most people were still asleep when it happened.

High King Pelogras Aneve II has called the High Court for an emergency meeting in the wake of the incident. His Majesty has ordered 15,000 national troops to help look for survivors. A team of 1,500 doctors and nurses will also be joining them. Other supplies will be included to provide for the survivors in the coming days. "Let this be a time of grieving as well as hope. I have faith in our people. We have gone through a lot of challenges in the past which only brought u0s closer to one another. I ask all citizens of Bracazas, especially those who are part of the reserved forces, to provide aid and assistance to our suffering countrymen. We all have to be brothers and sisters to one another. May Divinity shine its light on our plight," he told reporters in front of the royal palace this morning. The High Court has agreed to mobilize three military naval vessels and commission 10 more private ships to carry much needed resources to the city. Quad bikes and transports from the military are also on their way to provide relief in the light of tragedy.

The earthquake in Jazra is not the first or the worst earthquake to hit the country. In 367, a series of earthquakes shook the communes of Biriga in Espuira and Corza Pluvke in A Corza. It destroyed parts of Bridz and Pilvu, the provincial capitals of the affected provinces. Records at the time claim 350,000 souls dead.

U. of Patnistre, Kruje - The students and faculty of the University of Patnistre and the citizens of Kruje were joined by Minister Elmia Nigdos of the Ministry of Education this morning in the unveiling of the newly restored and renovated campus. One of the first universites built in the country by High King Solgis Fuazir the Wise, the leader who united all of the provinces of Bracazas, it stands today as a symbol for peace, unity, and the value that the Bracazie people place on education.

The Aneve government has already begun the construction and revitalization of public elementary, high schools, and colleges in Bracazas beginning of last year. As of late, 50 elementary schools, 24 high schools, and 9 community colleges have been opened to the public with dozens more on the way. The administration has so far succeeded in maintaining the high educational standards that the people have placed on them. Citizens are pleased to hear that their prez are being spent in the right way and support for the monarch has increased even higher than last year, the approval rate at 96% as of midday.

Mt. Sastra Shows Signs of Activity; Alert Level Increased

Mt. Sastra as viewed from Sprit, Jazra

Kludz, Jazra - Citizens of the province of Jazra were awoken this morning by the slight tremors and rumbling noises coming from Mt. Sastra, a volcano that is both feared and revered as one of the many personifications of the fire goddess, Stranza. Locals reported seeing plumes of ash and steam coming from the summit, a normal sight were it not for the unusually copious amounts of material and the heavier appearance of the smoke. Seismologists and volcanologists from the nearby University of Salge have long monitored this volcano for signs of an eruption and have increased the alert level from green to yellow, warning that the recent activity is evidence that pressure is building within Mt. Sastra's magma chamber. However, they insist that the threat of eruption as of present is low, but that citizens should be made aware of the danger the volcano poses to those living underneath its shadow and are urging people living within a 10-mile radius to evacuate and seek shelter in towns away from the projected path of destruction as a precaution. The increase in alert level also applies to aircraft who are traversing the skies directly above the volcano. Aviation officials have been alerted of the threat and are working to redirect air traffic away from the area. Local authorities have closed all roads leading to the area, including parts of the highway which connects the northern and southern parts of the province.

A spokesperson for the provincial government held a press conference reassuring citizens that these actions are meant to be preventive and that people should not panic or be fearful, but that they should act with an appropriate level caution, especially for those living or working near the volcano. "Our scientists have determined that although eruption is a possibility, the chance of such an event occurring is relatively slight. We do urge those living within the 10-mile zone to evacuate. The local government will be providing areas for shelter with supplies of food and water."

Mt. Sastra is known in Bracazas for its two previous eruptions which caused famine and destruction, claiming thousands of lives and leading to the downfall of many historical cultures which inhabited the area. Scientists are still unsure whether the January earthquake is connected with the recent activity at the volcano.
