  • Two Strong Earthquakes Hit Southwest China, At Least One Person Dead

BEIJING: A strong 6.0-magnitude natural disaster struck China´s southwestern Sichuan province on Monday, leaving at least six people dead and 75 others hurt, officials and state media said.

The US Geological survey also sent a tweet about the quake.

A strong natural disaster that hit Sichuan province in southern China late Monday night killed 11 people and injured 122, the local government said. The nearest major city, Chongqing, is 200 kilometers (120 miles) to the northeast.

The quake occurred at about 10:55 pm (1455 GMT) at a depth of 16 kilometres (10 miles), according to the China Earthquake Networks Center. Shallow earthquakes tend to cause more damage to buildings and infrastructure.

An aftershock measuring magnitude 5.2 later hit near the same area, the USGS said.

At least two people were killed and 19 others injured, Xinhua said, citing local authorities. The emergency management ministry said firefighters have been sent to the area as rescuers. There were no immediate reports of serious damage or injuries, but the USGS warned there could be damage and casualties.

China's worst quake in recent years struck the mountainous western portion of Sichuan province in 2008, killing almost 90,000 people. That natural disaster was about 400 kilometers (250 miles) from Monday's quake.

A 1976 quake centered in the northeastern city of Tangshan killed at least 250,000 people.
