You surely wouldn't have seen something like this before. The earthquake that shook New Zealand on the 16th of November, 2016 was recorded at a phenomenal magnitude of 7.8. The earthquake was so powerful that the Country's Seismologists have dubbed the year 2016 as the 'Groundbreaker'.

The ferocity of the event can be understood from the fact that the Sea floor was lifted over two metres, resulting in an explosion of sand and the unfortunate death of two people.

The Coastline was battered by fierce rains and winds resulting in two landslides which happened due to this treacherous quake.
