外文标题：Strong earthquake in west China kills 2; 54 hurt
BEIJING: A strong earthquake struck a lightly populated, mountainous area of western China, killing at least two people, injuring 54 others and collapsing homes, officials said on Sunday.
The US Geological Survey said the magnitude-5.9 quake hit Saturday about 30 kilometers (20 miles) from the town of Kangding in Sichuan province. China's seismological agency put the magnitude at 6.3.
The dead included a woman in her 70s who was struck by a falling window pane, the official Xinhua News Agency and state broadcaster CCTV said, citing Chen Yunbing, a doctor at the region's Ganzi People's Hospital.

These days many natural calamities are happening in china, I assume some links between the mistakes committed by the nation and its natural calamities.

In that case every nation should witness more natural calamities.

Thank God that few lives were lost and a small number injured. It could have been severe if a more populated area was hit by the quake.

This is natural fury and none can stop it.

Sad news but killing at least two people property damage & collapsing homes too much.
Jack Ponds (Jaipur City, Rajasthan, )
Though the earthquake hasn't caused much damage, it has killed two. Also, there might be a low damage caused but, it's hard for poor people to rise again, without the help of government. Hope, the government will help them.
