1966 Toro earthquake
On March 20, 1966, a 6.8-magnitude earthquake hit right on the border between Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, killing more than 150 people. Aftershocks from the initial quake claimed an additional 100 lives. The massive earthquake was felt as far away as Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, and Kenya. It collapsed buildings and homes while its resulting landslides blocked roads all over, hampering rescue efforts, said Moguldom.
