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.
1000 tourists and residents have been evacuated since the natural disaster took place.
The doctor said some New Zealand fur seals might have been killed as the landslide destroyed their protected breeding grounds.
The disaster will surely go down in the history of New Zealand which is known to be one of the picturesque countries.
