Was there an earthquake last year in Iran that was just as devastating? Perhaps more so because it was in Iran and killed thousands!

Was it really exactly one year ago, with the exception of 58 minutes off?
What time did the earthquake on Christmas Eve strike PST? No one seems to know.

I have only two fuzzy stations that come in where I live at. Yes, of course I have internet access. So far the most reliable newsource I have found comes out of Canada, BC.

Thanks.

China has also had their fair share of earthquakes with much loss of life.

Ever since 1900, over 550,000 people died in earthquakes in China, which takes up 53% of the total casualties in earthquakes around the world. Ever since 1949, more than 100 destructive earthquakes have happened in the provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions of China, among which 14 of them are provinces in East China. These earthquakes caused the death of more than 270,000 people, which took up 54% of the total death toll caused by natural disasters in China.

I never forgave Iran for the hostages, so I'm going to say:
Idiots! what do you expect to happen when you name your town BAM?
