  • In the Chinese capital of Chang'an, the walls of a gated city ward collapse during the night, which unexpectedly form a large pool out in the open. This is most likely caused by a sinkhole created when ground water eroded the limestone bedrock beneath. As a consequence of this, more than 500 homes are destroyed (approximate date).
