The 1976 Tangshan Earthquake The Tangshan earthquake of 1976 was one of the largest earthquakes in recent years. It occurred on July 28 at 3:42 a.m., Beijing (Peking) local time, and had magnitude 7.8 (revised to 7.5), focal depth of 15 kilometers, and an epicentral intensity of XI on the New Chinese Seismic Intensity Scale; it caused serious damage and loss of life in this densely populated industrial city. Now, with the help of people from all over China, the city of Tangshan is being rebuilt.
Although it was devastating for the friends and family of the victims of the earthquake, the deaths caused by the earthquake are only a short term effect. This is because before the earthquake the population of Tangshan was estimated to be around 1.6 million people, so, a loss of 242,419 lives (about 1/6 of the population) is only a very small amount compared to the estimated population. There are also thousands of children being born in Tangshan daily which increases the population by a small amount each day. Some Farmland in Tangshan was ruined because of the Earthquake. A lot of farmland was unusable for quite some time after the earthquake so no crops would have been able to be grown. Due to the lack of crops less food would be produced so there would be a shortage of food available. This means that due to the lack of crops the farmers wouldn't have any produce to sell, so they would have no financial income and because of the food shortage.
