Here's another link with a map and short narrative about the China earthquakes:http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/NaturalHazards/shownh.php3?img_id=14833
I think it depends to some extent, how the countries infrascuture is, as to what damage is done by an earthquake? If you build crappy leantos as "habitable " buildings they will be the first to come down. And in China that is the one of the "bug bears", if the buildings had been built properly, they might hav survived and the children in them.
