There was an earthquake in the Teng-chong area of Yun-nan. The following day, there were also major quakes extending from the middle of the night till late afternoon (自丑至申). Many walls and buildings, as well as official and civilian residences were destroyed, and the dead and injured were innumerable. Soon after, the earth split and water surged out, completely destroying the crops in the fields.
