As bad as the Asian Earthquake is...

It's not the worst in terms of casualty rate in my lifetime. In 1976, the earthquake in Tangshan was far worse.

I think this Asian Earthquake in terms of casualties is only 4th or 5th largest in the last 100 years. See here for more.

This of course is not to say this earthquake isn't incredibly horrible.
