My Comment: There are so many natural disasters now in the world, how can anyone not question the hand of God is moving as man does not create the weather. God wants so much for his people to turn to him throughout their life and he is truly a present help in times of trouble. Psalm 46:1……………Nahum 1:3……….

(CNN) — The death toll has risen to 367 and 1,600 people were injured after a strong earthquake hit China’s Yunnan province on Sunday, state-run television reported.

The area is a mountainous region, known for its natural scenery and ethnic diversity, but it’s also prone to natural disasters.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake had a magnitude of 6.1. The China Earthquake Networks Center called it a 6.5.

Some 12,000 homes were destroyed and 30,000 others were damaged, according to CCTV.

Video of the site by CCTV shows rescue workers digging with their hands under several feet of rubble that included dirt, rebar and concrete blocks.

Video shows the injured adults and children being rushed to hospitals in ambulances.

Power and telephone outages were complicating assessment of the damage, rescuers said.

The quake was centered about 11 kilometers (almost 7 miles) west-northwest of the town of Wenping, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Read More.
