M 7.7    22-08-1902   Depth 0 km    China – killing 5650 people
Chinese reports mention more than 10,000 people killed.
The earthquake radiated to many places.
From Urumchi in the East to Leninabad in Russia in the East, it reached Hetian in the South and Yili in the North. More than 30000 houses were collapsed and more than 10000 people were killed. The banks of the river collapsed and the cracks lasted as long as 50 kilometers. New springs occurred from the new cracks.

“In memory of” is highlighting deadly earthquakes of the past.
People have forgotten a lot of these human tragedies.
We @ Earthquake Report are hopeful that people in these countries and cities will learn from their history and will make sure that they are building Earthquake Proof houses and that they know what to do when the earth will be shaking again.
