Beijing: A strong earthquake at midnight in China has caused such devastation that heaps of dead bodies have been found everywhere. A strong earthquake occurred in China today i.e. early Wednesday, in which more than 100 people have died and more than 200 are injured. According to China’s government media report, the death toll in the powerful earthquake of 6.2 magnitude that occurred in northwest China i.e. Gansu-Qinghai province of China has so far crossed 110. It is being told that this earthquake was so strong that many buildings collapsed and there was screams all around.

According to the report of news agency AP, the official news agency Xinhua said that 100 people died in Gansu province and 11 in neighboring Qinghai province in the earthquake that occurred late on Monday night. Xinhua said more than 200 people were injured in the earthquake, 96 in Gansu and 124 in Qinghai. The earthquake occurred in Gansu’s Jishishan County, about 5 kilometers (3 mi) from the provincial border with Qinghai.

However, the US Geological Survey has reported the earthquake’s intensity as 5.9. Whereas Chinese CCTV reported that due to this strong earthquake, water and power lines as well as transportation and communication infrastructure have also been damaged. The earthquake was felt in Lanzhou, the Gansu provincial capital, about 1,450 kilometers (900 miles) southwest of the capital Beijing. People were seen frightened by the earthquake. According to a social media post, university students in Lanzhou came out of their dormitories.

Let us tell you that in September last year, at least 74 people were reported dead in an earthquake of 6.8 magnitude in China. That earthquake also shook China’s southwestern province of Sichuan, causing landslides and shaking buildings in the provincial capital Chengdu. This earthquake came at a time when China’s 21 million population was under lockdown due to Corona.

China’s deadliest earthquake in recent years was a magnitude 7.9 earthquake in 2008, which killed about 90,000 people in Sichuan. The earthquake destroyed towns, schools and rural communities outside Chengdu, taking China years to rebuild. Let us tell you that in the past there was a terrible earthquake in Nepal also.
