An earthquake strikes Sichuan province leaving dozens of people dead and hundreds injured, Chinese media says. More than 70 people have died and
over 600 injured after an earthquake struck China's southwestern province of Sichuan, Chinese media says. The quake, measured at varying magnitudes
between 6.6 and 7.0, hit at 8.02am local time close to the city of Ya'an in Lushan county and the epicentre had a depth of 8 miles (13km), Xinhua
Pretty big quake at 7.0, they are used to quakes but still you can only do so much to prevent loss of life, especially in rural areas.
