- July 30 — In the Tang Dynasty Chinese capital of Chang'an, the walls of a gated city ward collapsed during the night, which unexpectedly formed a large pool out in the open. This was most likely caused by a sinkhole created when ground water eroded the limestone bedrock beneath. As a consequence of this, more than 500 homes were destroyed (Benn, 50).
