TANGSHAN, July 27, 2016 -- Photo taken on Jan.26, 2016 shows view of Caofeidian Harbor in Tangshan, north China's Hebei Province. In the early hours of July 28, 1976, one of the deadliest earthquakes of the 20th century toppled Tangshan, killing more than 240,000 people and injuring another 160,000. The deadly earthquake leveled Tangshan in just 23 seconds, with 96 percent of the city's architecture generally destroyed. Yet Tangshan has been building a miracle on its debris ever since. By the year 2015, the per capita gross national product and fiscal revenue of Tangshanrank first in Hebei. (Xinhua/Yang Shiyao)
