Shandong in China

Shandong (Chinese: 山东) is a province on the east coast of China. It borders Hebei in its northwest, Henan in its west, and Anhui and Jiangsu in its south. Across the Bohai Strait to its north is Liaodong Peninsula, and across the Yellow Sea to the east is Korean Peninsula. Its capital is Jinan, and its largest city is Qingdao.

On July 25 , 1668, an earthquake with an estimated magnitude of 8.5, whose epicenter was just northeast of the city of Linyi, devastated Shandong and killed between 43,000 and 50,000 people.[1][2]
