319 people displacing more than 160000 destroying tens of thousands of homes and burying villagers beneath the rubble of mosques and other structures The disaster struck exactly one week after a foreshock clocked in with a strength of 64-magnitude and left 20 people dead Lombok which is especially popular among tourists visiting the tropical Gili Islands off its northwestern coast lies in the center of the Indonesian archipelago where thousands of volcano-pocked isles mark the western periphery of the Pacific Ring of Fire This horseshoe-shaped strip curves loosely from the waters east of Australia over maritime Southeast Asia up the coasts of China and Russia and down the west coast of the Americas from Alaska to Chile Roughly 81% of the most powerful earthquakes ever recorded happened along this volatile rim The Lombok earthquakes while disastrous were nowhere near as destructive as some of Asias earlier shocks But scenes of villagers in mourning rescuers scrambling through debris hordes of tourists crowded on a beach desperate to escape their idyllic destination all serve as a reminder that this region of the world is a hotbed of seismic activity that can quickly turn tragic With cities dams and other infrastructure built atop some of the worlds most active faults six of the ten deadliest quakes in recorded history happened in Asia as did many of the most costly Heres a look at back at some of the most devastating temblors ever to strike the continent The 1556 Shaanxi Earthquake China More than 830000 people died in the days after Jan 23 1556 when central China was struck by the deadliest earthquake ever recorded With an epicenter in the Wei River Valley the 8-magnitude quake reverberated throughout 10 provinces even damaging buildings in cities hundreds of miles away It may have killed about 60% of the population in some of the worst hit counties The horrific death toll is largely due to the collapse of several cliffs in the Loess Plateau where many people lived in "house caves" called yaodongs These traditional hillside dwellings carved into the earth to create temperate caverns crumbled to dust as the mountains shook Landslides wiped away entire settlements The rupture is often referred to as the "Jiajing Great Earthquake" a reference to the eponymous emperor of the Ming Dynasty who ruled at the time It would be impossible to calculate the damage by modern monetary values but its cost of human life is unmatched Another devastating temblor struck the neighboring province of Ningxia in 1920 however killing more than 200000 people and making it among China’s deadliest disasters The 1934 Nepal-Bihar Earthquake Some six miles south of Mount Everest the earth began to rumble on the afternoon of Jan 15 1934 Little was left in the wake of Nepal’s worst recorded earthquake a powerful 81-magnitude that leveled most of three major cities in the Kathmandu Valley and tore through parts of North and Northeast India An estimated 10700 to 12000 people were killed by the quake that severed hundreds of miles of terrain from Bihar to Assam Surrounded by rubble near the Nepali capital one structure remained remarkably intact: the Temple of Pashupati the nation’s guardian deity was reportedly untouched Elsewhere sand and water rose up from fissures in the ground softening a 186-mile stretch of land to a soup now known as the “slump belt” Some accounts describe buildings sinking down into the mud and floating away from their foundations Most of the deaths were in northern India’s Bihar where 7253 people reportedly died Mahatma Gandhi visited affected areas shortly after His reflections on the tragedy which he characterized as divine retribution for India’s caste system sparked a moral debate about the status and treatment of what he termed harijans the lowest class in Indian society more commonly known as Dalits or “untouchables” The disaster was chronicled in a book by Major General Brahma Shamsher titled The Great Earthquake of Nepal 1990 (the country’s calendar is 56 years ahead of Gregorian dates) reportedly first published in 1935 His compilation of first-hand accounts and unparalleled details about the Nepalese Army’s relief efforts were republished in the wake of Nepal’s devastating 2015 quake The 1976 Tangshan Earthquake China Most of Tangshan was fast asleep when the world came crashing down around them At 3:43 am on July 28 1976 the industrial city in northeastern China’s Hebei Province was struck by a 76-magnitude quake that wiped out more than a third of its entire population The official death toll rests around 242000 though by some estimates fatalities may have reached 655000 according to the US Geological Survey The aftermath of the devastating earthquake of July 28 1976 that hit Tangshan in the eastern part of Hebei Province China Sovfoto—UIG/Getty Images News of the event traveled slowly and so did relief Railroads bridges and highways were rendered impassable and survivors later recalled being trapped under mounds of bricks waiting to be saved Roughly 80% of the buildings citywide were said to have been flattened or severely damaged; the extent of destruction largely attributed to Tangshan’s complete unpreparedness for catastrophe despite its being built directly atop a known active fault line Seismic shifts were also taking place within the ruling Communist Party of China at the time disaster struck; just months prior the death of Premier Zhou Enlai precipitated a leadership scramble as party Chairman Mao Zedong’s health deteriorated and his Cultural Revolution was in its last act Mao died about six weeks after the earthquake and his successor Hua Guofeng preemptively seized on the issue to consolidate support reportedly making a personal visit in early August Chinese officials rejected assistance from abroad and international media was not allowed access According to a report published by TIME 23 years after the tragedy the leftist political faction latched onto the crisis to reinforce their authority: They refused offers of aid from international organizations and launched a campaign entitled Resist the Earthquake Rescue Ourselves Doctors and soldiers were sent in from all over the country Injured residents were evacuated often to distant hospitals while provincial governments sheltered thousands of orphaned children Temporary shanties sprang up throughout the devastated city and beyond An infant born on the day of the disaster was famously named Xiedang: Thank you party Nonetheless the years that followed were beset by political rivalries that led to the downfall of the Maoist Gang of Four the end of the Cultural Revolution and the resumption of power by reformist Deng Xiaopeng The Tangshan earthquake was the subject of a 2006 novel by Zhang Ling titled Aftershock later adapted to the silver screen by director Feng Xiaogang The film’s revised narrative followed the lead characters’ lives several decades down the line when another calamitous quake hit central China’s Sichuan Province The 2001 Gujarat Earthquake India It had happened several times before but the tremors of 1819 and 1956 paled in comparison to the 76-magnitude shock that felled swaths of the fast-growing state of Gujarat on Jan 26 2001 At least 20000 people are believed to have died and hundreds of thousands of buildings destroyed in the strongest earthquake to strike the westernmost state of India in almost a century The district of Bhuj was hardest hit some 12 miles away from the epicenter Nearby rural villages were reportedly completely flattened and some believe the death toll to be higher than official estimates because it was common for some poor villagers to live their entire lives without ever being officially recognized by the government; no birth certificate no identification card no record of ever existing TIME reported from the scene in the days after the quake that there was “no escaping stench of dead and burning flesh” as bodies were quickly burned to prevent the spread of disease The main road from the airport has a 12-inch gash in the middle and every so often the ground still heaves Along the road the remnants of houses lie broken There are piles of chopped wood in preparation for the mass cremation in the evening when more bodies have been pulled out of the rubble People are living on the streets the women inside makeshift enclosures of tied sheets or saris A homeless family waits for a vehicle on Jan 27 2001 against a backdrop of ruined

Bhuj in India’s Gujarat state Arko Datta—AFP/Getty Images The 2004 Indian Ocean Earthquake and Tsunami Sumatra Indonesia Nineteen miles below sea level in the early hours of Dec 26 2004 a 91-magnitude earthquake shook the seas near the coast of Sumatra in the northwestern reaches of the Indonesian archipelago Over the days that followed shockwaves caused by the quake slammed into shorelines as far afield as South Africa some 5300 miles away Fishermen manning their boats in the waters near Indonesia Thailand Malaysia Sri Lanka and elsewhere saw the tides being sucked into the sea Not long after waves as high as 100 feet overhead came rushing toward the coastlines turning cities into swamps full of corpses and sodden debris Tsunami survivor Paphun Somsri of Thailand returns to the destroyed seaside hotel where she used to work in Khao Lak Thailand on Jan 7 2005 Andrew Wong—Getty Images More than 227000 people were declared dead or missing in the weeks after the tragedy that affected 14 countries across two continents One week after the tsunami struck as survivors on disparate coasts sifted through wreckage for remains a fisherman named Bustami from the Sumatran village of Bosun described the event to TIME: At first Bustami saw water retreat from shore with fish jumping around on the empty beaches Then he says “I heard this strange thunderous sound from somewhere a sound I’d never heard before I thought it was the sound of bombs” The water rose behind him as high as the coconut trees on the shoreline and he was thrown off his boat “It felt like doomsday” says Bustami who after clinging to a coconut tree was eventually picked up by a soldier three hours later almost 2 miles away from where he had lost his boat No other tsunami in recorded history was as deadly with victims from all over the world counted among the casualties Waves wiped out villages cities luxury getaways schools and hospitals Survivors clung to palm trees as sweeping floodwaters rushed past full of broken glass car parts and corpses When the waters slowed and receded survivors and rescuers trudged through the waterlogged wreckage sometimes to find they were standing on top of dead bodies Mangroves coral reefs and marine life were wrecked leaving a lasting mark on the environment and regional economies But the legacy of the tsunami transcended its path of destruction Governments throughout the world pooled together some $14 billion in aid for affected regions Shorelines rebuilt in the following years were marked with warnings signs pointing to pathways toward higher ground and an Indian Ocean Tsunami Warning System came online in 2006 "I didnt know what a tsunami was… nobody did" a survivor in the Thai resort town of Khao Lak told TIME ten years later Today they know The 2008 Sichuan Earthquake China A decade on the earthquake that rocked China’s Sichuan province on May 12 2008 still looms large in the nation’s memory While the 79-magnitude earthquake didn’t break records in terms of its strength it left behind a devastating impact on the loss of human life and a prolonged aftermath More than 87000 people were reported killed and missing as well as 48 million rendered homeless from the quake’s destruction In terms of economic losses the quake was the second highest in absolute numbers in history and was one of the few instances in recent history where China requested international aid and assistance to help with the mammoth recovery effort with an estimated $1375 billion spent on rebuilding the affected areas As the Chinese government responded to the disaster under international media scrutiny questions surfaced about the poor infrastructure in the affected region According to UNICEF more than 18000 schools across Sichuan and neighboring Gansu province were damaged as the earthquake struck in the afternoon on a school day killing thousands of children Allegations quickly arose that shoddy construction was to blame for the quake’s effect on schools and that corrupt local officials had permitted the neglect of building safety regulations Scientists have also suggested that a nearby hydropower dam may have affected the timing and intensity of the quake through a phenomenon known as Reservoir-Induced Seismicity One year on from the quake in May 2009 TIME spoke to prominent Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei who strongly advocated for the parents of children killed in the tragedy As TIME reported: Ai’s interest in the issue began when he visited the earthquake zone weeks after the event and saw firsthand the suffering of its victims and particularly of those who had lost children He began to write extensively about the issue on his blog already one of the country’s most popular and soon found readers volunteering to help him in an attempt to record the exact number of students who had been killed It’s a project Ai says he will continue until “we find the last name or I am dead” Official counts were not released until one year on from the quake placing the number of student deaths at 5335 However parents and activists disputed its accuracy arguing that the figure was closer to 10000 The tenth anniversary of the tragedy was marked earlier this year with reports suggesting that the Chinese government highlighted more positive repercussions of the quake such as praising the army’s response and the spirit of the volunteers that aided the recovery effort But the impact of the earthquake in Sichuan and beyond is still profound particularly for the parents still searching for answers and the survivors of the disaster The 2011 Tōhoku Earthquake and Tsunami Japan A magnitude 90 earthquake struck Japan’s northeastern coast and Tōhoku region on March 11 2011 triggering a tsunami with catastrophic consequences It was the fifth-largest quake in the world since 1900 and its power even impacted the earth’s gravitational field rattling a satellite orbiting at the outer edge of Earth’s atmosphere The quake caused a tsunami which slammed Japan’s coastline with waves of more than 32 feet high and travelled some 62 miles inland Nearly 20000 people were confirmed dead and 2500 missing in the disaster A third crisis erupted when the pressure levels at the region’s Fukushima nuclear power plant reached much higher than normal due to the forces of the tsunami waves In the days following the quake explosions at the plant led to the release of radiation in the surrounding areas and mass evacuations In April the crisis at Fukushima was raised to a level 7 disaster on the International Nuclear Event Scale joining only one other event in this category: the 1986 disaster at the Chernobyl plant in the former Soviet Union As TIME reported from Japan one month on from the disaster: …the country’s struggle between its technological heart and natural soul continues Brave workers are racing to limit the dangers from the radiation-spewing Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant which was damaged by the natural disaster Farmers near the radiation zone have been forced to dump tainted milk and produce And fishermen can no longer depend on the ocean’s generosity since their boats were smashed into splinters The disaster remains the costliest earthquake in the world with material damage estimated at about $300 billion according to CNN More than 70000 people remain displaced from their communities seven years on from the triple tragedy Tokyo will play host to the 2020 Olympics and the event’s organizing committee announced last month that the traditional Olympic torch relay will start from Fukushima to mark the events of 2011 and showcase the region’s recovery The 2015 Nepal Earthquake It was no secret that Nepal was vulnerable to deadly disaster and the 78-magnitude quake that struck near the district of Lamjung on April 24 2015 proved decades of warnings tragically prescient For about 50 seconds the ground shook intensely and brought buildings tumbling down across the impoverished Himalayan countryside and through the heart of the capital Then came the aftershocks A 69-magnitude tremor the following day triggered a landslide on nearby Mount Everest killing 21 people in the single deadliest day on the world’s highest mountain More than 150 others died when a second earthquake struck along the very same fault line on May 12 while rescuers were still trying to deliver assistance to those affected by the initial shock James Nachtwey’s Dispatches from Nepal Bodies are prepared for cremation during a Hindu ritual at the Pashupatinath Temple in

2015 James Nachtwey for TIME 1 of 12 Advertisement Nearly 9000 people were killed in the disaster and millions were made homeless in an instant The remote locations of the hardest hit areas made rescue and relief operations extremely difficult while most of those affected were already poor rural villagers with few services and little to no infrastructure A multinational relief effort was launched to assist Nepal one of the poorest countries in Asia with the gargantuan task of locating affected populations and providing medical assistance and clean water as the risk of infectious disease loomed large But reconstruction proved the most difficult task in a country with low GDP poor infrastructure and an inefficient bureaucracy; total damages have been estimated at 7 to 10 billion dollars One year after the quake TIME visited the still devastated district of Sindhupalchok finding little progress had been made Ram Giri a truck driver who lost his home and his job to the crisis described his life in the wake of the catastrophe The only work left for him he said at the time was a bit of manual labor here and there "Its mostly removing rubble leftover from last year" he says "At the end of the month we now have $30 maybe $40 for a family of four Our home has been destroyed Who knows when the government will rebuild it They say they will give us money to rebuild it
