外文标题：China earthquake leaves 300 injured, one dead
BEIJING: A strong earthquake that hit southwest China's mountainous Yunnan province has killed one person, and left more than 300 people injured as well as 50,000 displaced, state media said on Wednesday.
The shallow 6.0 magnitude quake hit late on Tuesday in a region that lies close to China's borders with Myanmar and Laos, the US Geological Survey (USGS) said.
One person was so far known to have died, the official Xinhua news agency said. It added that 324 people were injured, mainly in Jinggu County, close to the epicentre of the quake.
It quoted local officials as saying more than 92,000 people in Jinggu were affected and that 56,880 of them had been relocated.
"Many houses collapsed and we are investigating the casualties," a local official told the agency. "The aftershocks seem non-stopping."
The epicentre was located 85 kilometres (around 50 miles) from Pu'er city, in a region famous for its tea plantations. The quake was also felt in Yunnan's provincial capital Kunming.

Earthquakes unexpectedly take place all over the world and when it happens, people come to the rescue and even dogs help in their own way. No place on earth has any guarantee of safety from earthquakes. Historical records confirm that earthquakes are not the result of CO2 just as the Flood of Noah was not caused by CO2. People fail, businesses fail, engines fail, marriages fail and even the earth is failing more ad more frequently.
