More earthquakes July 4th ChinaA shallow 6.4-magnitude earthquake that struck China’s far western region of Xinjiang has killed at least six people, Chinese officials say.
The epicentre was in Pishan county, 164 kilometres northwest of the city of Hotan and 131 kilometres southeast of Shache, known as Yarkand in Uighur, the language of the local mainly Muslim minority.
It was 20 kilometres deep, according to the US Geological Survey, which initially gave the magnitude as 6.1. A series of aftershocks followed with the strongest measuring 4.8, it said on Friday.
The area is on the edge of the Taklamakan desert, but the civil affairs ministry said six people had died.
The state news agency Xinhua said 48 people had been injured and cited officials saying an airport in Hotan had been closed.
Li Hua, a worker at a state-owned farm in Pishan, which has a population of 258,000, mainly Uighurs, told Xinhua that he felt the quake strongly, with his fourth-floor apartment shaking for about a minute.
‘I’m feeling dizzy,’ it quoted Li as saying.
State broadcaster China Central Television showed footage of items falling off shelves in a local supermarket when the quake struck, and cracked walls at a fire station.
The government is sending 1000 tents and disaster relief materials to the quake zone, the civil affairs ministry said.
The China Earthquake Network Centre gave the magnitude as 6.5.

Well, I’d seen a couple other postings in the past month that had mentioned “6 of 7 volcanoes going off”, but that was from 2013, I believe. But this one acutally DOES appear to be from NOW. So here it is.
You may not have noticed, but our planet is becoming increasingly unstable. According to Volcano Discovery, 40 volcanoes around the globe are erupting right now, and only 6 of them are not along the Ring of Fire. If that sounds like a very high number to you, that is because it is a very high number.
