China Stricken By Powerful Earthquakes

CHINA—Rescue efforts are underway in the northwest Gansu province of China after a series of strong earthquakes struck the area at 7:45 a.m. on Monday, July 22, which has thus far resulted in the deaths of at least 90 Chinese citizens with more than 400 others injured.

 

Early estimates of the magnitudes of the two major earthquakes vary, but the China Earthquake Networks Center has officially stated that the first earthquake measured at a magnitude of 6.6 with the epicenter 20 kilometers (about 12 miles) deep. A second earthquake, measuring at a magnitude of 5.6, occurred an hour later in the same area.

 

The Earthquake Administration of Gansu province reported 371 aftershocks.

 

Altogether, 21,000 buildings were severely damaged and about 1,200 have collapsed in the Gansu province, according to state reports. Power outages and disrupted communications have plagued the region, and the earthquakes have triggered mudslides and landslides in the area, known for consisting of mountains, deserts and pastures.

 

President Xi Jinping has called for extensive rescue efforts in the region; more than 300 local militia men have been dispatched to help, with extra support coming from the Chinese army and state police.

 

The Chinese Red Cross plans to provide more than 200 tents, 1,000 sets of household items, and 2,000 jackets. The organizations will also send teams from Lanzhou and Beijing to help with rescue efforts.

 

Rain, which will hinder recovery efforts in the area, is expected to arrive next week.
