Earthquakes

China sits on a number of major geological fault lines and has been subject to many severe earthquakes. The frequency of earthquakes is one reason why Chinese buildings were mainly built of wood and only one or two floors high. The most recent major earthquake was the one at Tangshan on July 28th 1976 when an estimated 650,000 people died. This was deadlier than the Haiti (2010) and Sumatra (2004) earthquakes. Further back in time the deadliest earthquake ever was in 1556 in Shaanxi when as many as 830,000 people died.
