Certaily, it brought the people of Tangshan and China enormous loss and hurt. Many people who survived in the disaster lost their folks, and a lot of children became orphans.

The great Tangshan earthquake had brounght huge damage and hurt to the Chinese people. After 30 years, we should not only yearn the dead people but also should strive to prevent the tragedy from occurring again.
