             About 150 dead and 5,500 injured in recent China's quake

 A strong 6.6 magnitude earthquake hit a remote, mostly rural and mountainous area of southwestern China’s Sichuan province on Saturday, killing at least 156 people and injuring about 5,500 close to where a big quake killed almost 70,000 people in 2008.
   The earthquake, China’s worst in three years, occurred at 8.02 a.m. (0002 GMT) in Lushan county near Ya’an city and the epicenter had a depth of 12 km (7.5 miles), the U.S. Geological Survey said.
  The quake was felt by residents in neighboring provinces and in the provincial capital of Chengdu, causing many people to rush out of buildings, according to accounts on China’s Twitter-like Sina Weibo micro-blogging service.

  4. This really pisses me off!!! We have had "nothing" on our news about this....maybe a small tag running at hte bottom of the screen! It has been nothing but Boston bomb attack and i don't know why. I understand a child died and that 3 others were killed, but our news didn't spend this much time on Sandy Hook where twenty 7 and 8 year olds were killed...we've had an explosions in Texas with ammonia....I don't understand it all......that's serious quake...so many dead and hurt :( they're in my thoughts
