A  7.1-magnitude earthquake attacked Qinghai, west of China, and till now the death roll has rose to 589 .

But abhout 2 hours before this macroseism, there was a 4.7-magnitude earthquake happened. For this earth tremor was so slight that the people and government didn't take it as a serious alert for a coming stronger earthquake .

if all the people and government'e related departments attach an importance to that slight quake, we can save more lives

the 4.7-magnitude quake did woke up some to escape.
but many were sleeping at that time.

Do you mean the officials in charge should call all Yushu offficials and policemen to slap on the door of every household?

A netizen said one of the responsibilities of the seismology bureau is to monitor the quality of buildings to mitigate/prevent disaster. The persons in the bureau relieved that everytime after the earthquake people's focus was on the preditability but not on blaming their failure of supervision on building quality.

rather strange sequence of "earthquakes"......

just in the correct places that have "inadequacy" or at correct "timing" to show up some issues!
the world is a mysterious place!

after the tangshan and sichuan experience, at the very least, it should have been made manditory that all communities in the fault line be equipted with warning sirens much as that which the u.s. midwest have adopted to warn people of tornadoes and twisters and drill practices regularly to keep people on their toes about the danger of earth quakes. and no, you don't need to wake up authorities to go knock on door at 3 in the morning. once the siren broadcasts its freaky, eerie, and ear drum splitting sound, there's no way you won't be startled and there's no way you won't want to go outdoors where it's safer.
Putin's a killer. This was the claim made by Fox News journalist; Bill O'Reilly during his recent interview with Donald Trump. Trump's reply came in the form of a simple question. What, you think our country's so innocent?

these buildings were built decades ago when almost all the people didn't take the element of earthquake resistance into regarding.
it was a consensus at that time
