At least 700 homes collapsed after a 6.1-magnitude earthquake shoot western China's Xinjiang region Monday, according to government reports.
At least 10 people were dead, although with search-and-rescue continuing Monday, that count was likely to rise.
Zhaosu County was hard hit.
The U.S. Geological Survey reported the quake as a magnitude 5.7.
Xinjiang was the location of another quake earlier this year, a 6.8-magnitude that killed nearly 300 people.
Western China is earthquake-prone but has had an even higher number of strong earthquakes than usual in recent months.
