- Qiongshan Great Earthquake, Land subsidence, Tsunami
The 7.5 magnitude great earthquake occurred in Qiongshan of Hainan Province ,on July 13, 1605. it didn’t only destroy a large number of houses, but also caused a large area of land subsidence in the Dongzhaigang area where the epicenter was located, however, it didn’t completely sink to the bottom of the sea. The whole area in Dongzhai Harbor is gradually formed after the Qiongshan great earthquake because of the long-term land subsidence. The earthquake relics in the Harbor, especially the seabed village, were undoubtedly destroyed by the earthquake, but the submergence in the bottom of the sea should be caused by the long-term land subsidence after the great earthquake. When the Qiongshan great earthquake occurred, a large amount of seawater poured into the coastal area of Qiongzhou Strait in the north of Hainan Island, because the earthquake caused seabed collapse and landslide in the Qiongzhou Strait triggering a small tsunami.
