A strong earthquake in the mountains of south west China on Sunday destroyed 12,000 houses, buried roads and killed at least 367 people.
The magnitude-6.1 quake happened at 4:30 p.m on the border between Yunnan and Sichuan provinces. Ma Liya, a local, said the streets looked like a “battlefield after bombardment” after the earthquake. People rushed out, houses were destroyed, and roads, electricity and communications were all cut off.
Governments attach great importance to this disaster. They are sparing no effort to help the people there. More than 2,500 armies have been sent to the area. The Red Cross Society of China have provided many quilts, jackets and tents for those people who were made homeless by the quake. While Red Cross branches in Hong Kong, Macau and neighboring Sichuan province have also sent lots of useful things there. Rescue teams are there. "There are countless people waiting to be rescued and rescue teams were clearing the roads with their hands" said Mao Lihui, a volunteer on one of the rescue teams. The White House is also ready to help.
Chinese state broadcaster CCTV said it was the strongest quake for 14 years in there. In 1970, a magnitude 7.7 quake in Yunnan killed at least 15,000 people. A quake in Sichuan in 2008 killed almost 70,000 people.
