Tremors felt in Yunnan’s provincial capital of Kunming

Centered at 24.976°N, 97.865°E, the M5.9 quake  struck at a depth of about 10 km, some 500 km west of the Kunming, provincial capital of Yunnan province.

The quake occurred in Yingjiang County at 9:20 am, reported China Earthquake Networks Center.

“Tremors were strongly felt in the county seat, where local residents rushed to open areas,” reported Xinhua.

A magnitude 5.8 earthquake struck the same area last week, injuring at least 13 people and affecting more than 300,000 people in 15 towns, destroying or damaging about 10,000 homes.

In March 2011, a deadly 5.8Mw quake hit Yingjiang County killing dozens of people and leaving hundreds of others injured.

In May 2008, the Wenchuan earthquake killed about 90,000 people and caused billions of dollars in damages.
