China quake Deadly tremor Sichuan city in lockdown

The earthquake hit Sichuan province at 13:00 local time (05:00 GMT) on Monday at a depth of 10km (6 miles).

Local media say that the impact broke communication lines and caused mountain landslides that caused "serious damage."

Covid rules told about 21 million people in Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan, to stay home last week. According to the China Earthquake Networks Centre, the epicentre of the quake was in Luding,

a town in a remote mountain area about 226 km southwest of Chengdu. CCTV, a state-run news station, said that 17 people died in the city of Ya'an and 29 people died in the nearby prefecture of Ganzi.

CCTV said late Monday night that 16 more people were missing and 50 were hurt. Buildings in Chengdu and the nearby megacity of Chongqing shook because of the tremors.

This shut down communication lines and blocked roads in areas with more than 10,000 people. CCTV said that the shaking caused some power plants in the Garze and Ya'an areas to shut down. 

State broadcaster CGTN said that more than 500 rescue workers were sent to the epicentre while other people worked to clear roads that had been blocked by landslides.

People in Chengdu said they saw people in high-rise apartments running out in a panic after getting earthquake alerts on their phones.

An international PR consultant named Laura Luo told the news agency Reuters that many people were so scared that they started to cry. As soon as the shaking started, "The dogs all started to bark. It was pretty scary. "
