Five dead as quake strikes in remote part of China's Sichuan province

BEIJING (Reuters) - An earthquake measuring 6.5 in magnitude struck China's remote and mountainous southwestern province of Sichuan on Tuesday, the U.S. Geological Survey said, killing five people and causing some damage to buildings in a tourist resort.

The quake struck in a sparsely populated area 200 km (120 miles) west-northwest of the city of Guangyuan at a depth of 10 km (6 miles), the USGS said. It had earlier put the quake at magnitude 6.6 and 32 km deep.

The Sichuan earthquake administration said the epicenter of the tremor was in Ngawa prefecture, largely populated by ethnic Tibetans, many of whom are nomadic herders, but also close to the Jiuzhaigou nature reserve, a popular tourist destination.

The Sichuan government said five people had been killed and more than 60 were injured, 30 of them seriously. The official People's Daily said the dead were all tourists.

This was not an earthquake, it was explosion (very large).

That would one hell of a landing by Navy Seals, since 6.0 earthquake is equivalent to about 15 kiloton blast of tnt or the Little Boy atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima.
