Hong Kong (CNN) -- A strong earthquake struck the southwestern Chinese province of Sichuan on Saturday, killing at least 179 people and injuring about 6,700 others in a region that suffered a catastrophic quake five years ago, the state-run Xinhua news agency reported Sunday.

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • NEW: The death toll rises to at least 179, authorities say
  • About 6,700 people are reported to have been injured
  • Chinese Premier Li Keqiang travels to the area
  • The quake struck about 70 miles from the city of Chengdu in Sichuan


It was followed by a series of aftershocks, some of them as strong as magnitude 5.1, the USGS said.
Authorities have responded by sending rescue workers to the area around the epicenter, briefly halting flights at the airport in Chengdu and suspending high-speed rail operations, state media reported.
The event stirred memories of the devastating earthquake that hit Sichuan in 2008, killing more than 87,000 people.
