Latest earthquake in Yunnan

We are booked to visit Yunnan in a few weeks and are a bit concerned about the place after the latest earth quake a couple of days ago. Media report seems to indicate damage & sadly death mainly in the rural areas. Anyone knows the latest situation?

Awang is correct. This did not take place in a tourist area and a few weeks for now it will obviously be all over.

All the tours from HK have been canceled. So you better check with your tour company if you are taking a guided tour.

Yes, my friend in Kunming told me he didn't know there was earthquake if he didn't watch TVs. He felt nothing about the earthquake.

Thanks for all your feedback!

Today I had a look at a good map on China & realized Yiliang County is actually quite far from Kunming , towards the NW of Yunnan.

I was using Google the other day to find Yiliang county where the earthquake was reported to take place and it showed me another Yiliang which is between Kunming & the Stone Forest - hence my concern! It seems that there are 2 places called Yiliang in Yunnan!
