"A powerful earthquake rocked China’s southwestern Sichuan Province Saturday morning, killing at least 132 people, injuring more than 5,500 and leaving unknown numbers of people trapped, according to the state media."

This quake occurred 53 miles from the site of the 2008 earthquake that “left more than 87,000 dead or missing.” Yesterday’s quake also lay along the same fault line.
