1927 Quakes

Interestingly, there were two big eathquakes in Japan that year, the first killing nearly 3,000 people, the second out at sea caused a tsunami which killed 100 people, neither of which got a mention in the news over the last few weeks. Meanwhile in China there was a much bigger one which killed 200,000 (more than the the Great Tokyo earthquake of 1923 and the Sichuan earthquake of 2008 put together), also hardly mentioned now.
