The title of a recently released Yahoo! article is “Quakes kill at least 50 in mountainous SW China” (Web-site/URL: http://news.yahoo.com/quakes-kill-least-50-mountainous-sw-china-121538065.html).
“In Luozehe, a town in Yiliang near a zinc mine, residents and state media said BOULDERS HURTLED OFF HILLSIDESand HOUSES COLLAPSED“. So this was a VIOLENT quake.
“Xinhua quoted miner Peng Zhuwen as saying” “It is SCARY. My brother was killed by FALLING ROCKS. The aftershocks struck again and again. We are so AFRAID“. “scary” and “afraid” are the latest expressions of FEAR.
Finally, “A government official in Jiaokui town said A LARGE NUMBER OF (?) houses had collapsed“. HOW MANY is “a large number?” “The casualty number IS STILL BEING COMPILED. I don’t know what it was like for the other towns, but my town got hit BADLY“. HOW “badly?” “Like many Chinese officials, HE REFUSED TO GIVE HIS NAME” to AVOID TAKING RESPONSIBILITY. WHAT A SURPRISE.
OK, so there has been another NATURAL disaster in CHINA and the response from the COMMUNIST Chinese government has been THE SAME.
