China earthquakes damage 20,000 homes, leave 50 dead


Happened here:



quote:

Damaged cars are seen in Luozehe town, Yiliang County, southwest China's Yunnan Province, Friday, Sept. 7, 2012. A series of earthquakes collapsed houses and triggered landslides in a remote mountainous part of southwestern China.

quote:

A series of earthquakes collapsed houses and triggered landslides in a remote mountainous part of southwestern China on Friday, killing at least 50 people with the toll expected to rise. Damage was preventing rescuers from reaching some outlying areas, and communications were disrupted.

The quakes started with a 5.6-magnitude shock before 11:30 a.m. along the borders of Guizhou and Yunnan provinces, and another equally big quake struck shortly after noon followed by more than 60 aftershocks, Chinese and U.S. government seismologists said. Though of moderate strength, the quakes were shallow, which often causes more damage.
quote:

Xinhua said Friday's quakes destroyed or damaged 20,000 homes. The Yunnan seismology bureau said and more than 100,000 people were evacuated from their homes. All told, Xinhua said, 700,000 people had their lives disrupted by the quake.
Wow...first Costa Rica and now this. Hopefully there won't be any more anytime soon! These poor people

Yes. Thank you for the geography lesson. That doesn't change the fact that I hope it doesn't happen to anyone else. I never said one caused the other

"The casualty number is still being compiled. I don't know what it was like for the other towns, but my town got hit badly," he said. Like many Chinese officials, he refused to give his name.
Why don't China officials give out their names when it comes to something like this? Is it because they rae so tight on national security or something?

Was it China that a bunch of politicians mysteriously died in car accidents?
