Strong 7.2 Earthquake Hits China

Strong 7.2 Earthquake Hits China

Late yesterday evening, strong tremors rattled Delhi and the National Capital Region, stemming from a powerful 7.2 magnitude earthquake in southern China's Xinjiang. The National Center of Seismology, in a post on the platform X (formerly Twitter), noted that the quake occurred at a depth of 80 kilometers.

This seismic event follows mild tremors in Delhi and the NCR on January 11, triggered by a 6.1 magnitude earthquake in Afghanistan, with the epicenter 241 kilometers northeast of Kabul, felt even in Pakistan.

Today, a significant quake struck a remote, mountainous area in southwestern China, burying 47 people. State broadcaster CCTV reported that over 200 individuals were urgently evacuated from the affected region. The landslide occurred at 5:51 am in Zhenxiong County, Yunnan province, prompting swift responses from local authorities.

China has been grappling with a series of natural disasters in recent months, often associated with extreme weather events such as intense, sudden downpours. The latest seismic activity adds to the challenges faced by the country, underscoring the need for ongoing vigilance and preparedness in the face of unpredictable natural occurrences.
