There was a 7-magnitude quake in Ya'an city of Sichuan province,when I heard the news,I felt sad for those fellows killed in the earthquake,ya'an earthquake has killed 192 people,23 people were missing and 11470 people were injured.I remember the 2008 Sichuan earthquake,it was a big disaster for China,thousands of people killed and many people lost their houses and families,the whole nation was griefstricken.Let's pray for the people of Ya'an,I believe the ya'an people will be able to rebuild their homes soon under the leadership of our government.

I am so sorry, elenaliu! I live in a country who has many big eartyhquakes, but fortunatly most lives are spared because all new buildings and houses meet a special "earthquake proof" standard. The old houses suffer damage, but there are less every time. The loss of human lives is the worst: the rest can be achived little by little. Take care!
