Reporting from Beijing
An earthquake that Chinese officials measured at magnitude 7.1 rocked a remote, mostly Tibetan-populated county in western China early Wednesday, killing at least 300 people and injuring 8,000, according to state television reports.

The quake struck in Qinghai province about 20 miles from the county seat of Yushu, where it toppled houses, an elementary school and part of a Buddhist tower in a public park and seriously damaged the main hospital in town, officials told Chinese media.

I understand that earthquakes happen every day, but it does seem to me that this year more earthquakes are making headlines. There are just more big quakes happening this time... Is it just a coincidence?

I was hoping not to hear another report of something disastrous like this for a while

With so many earthquakes, it feels like 2012 is really real.

I'm not surprised... an article said this many earthquakes is normal, but most of them arent close to population centers...

Population Centers are getting bigger, and therefore, there is an increase in mass on many spots of the planet. Think about it, tectonic plates already collide and slide and whatnot. Increasing the mass puts more stress on the plates, which MIGHT explain the earthquakes.
