The death toll from a strong earthquake in Sichuan province Monday night has risen to 12, with 125 injured, officials said.

The 6.0-magnitude quake’s epicenter hit counties in Yibin city at 10:55 p.m and damaged buildings, roads and communication facilities. Local residents have been transferred to shelters, local authorities said, and rescues remain underway. 

The official earthquake monitoring department said there had been over 60 aftershocks with magnitude greater than 2, and warned they could also be destructive.

Sichuan was the location of one of modern China’s most devastating earthquakes. In 2008, an 8.0-magnitude quake struck the county of Wenchuan and killed nearly 70,000 people in the surrounding areas. Tremors were felt more than 1,000 miles away in Beijing and Shanghai.
