70-thousand houses sustained serious damage.
Experts say aftershocks measuring four on the Richter scale would likely
occur in the next few days.
57 aftershocks rocked the area in the hours after the quake.
Those measured between 2 and 4-point-6.

The quake hit close to the Great Wall in northern China. It mearsured a

Elvis Presley would have celebrated his 63-rd birthday this week.
He was born in Tupelo Mississippi back on January 8, 1935.
But did you know he died just before a scheduled concert in Roanoke?
And the association between The King and Southwest Virginia doesn't end

The King performed in Roanoke four times -- in 1955, 1972, 74 and 76.
And he died just eight days before what would have been his fifth trip to
the Star City.
Just hours after his death, Roanoke music stores sold out of Presly albums.

((I HAVEN'T GOT ANY NUMBERS, BUT WE'RE JUST ABOUT OUT OF SINGLES AND WE'RE

Many Elvis fans who planned to attend the concert chose to keep their
tickets rather than sell them to collectors.

((I DON'T WANT TO MAKE MONEY ON ELVIS. I WANT TO REMEMBER HIM AS THE DECENT
PERSON HE WAS. AND IF I GIVE THEM UP, I'LL GIVE THEM BACK TO THE CIVIC CENTER

But the link between Elvis and Southwest Virginia didn't end there.
In 1985 the Epperly's began building a replica of Graceland on the front
lawn of their Riverland Road home.
Later they added the house in Tupelo where Elvis was born, the Heartbreak
Hotel Restraunt, the Elvis Presly Car Museum and the Roanoke Civic Center.
