Flooded Chinese town finally re-emerges after five years under water

Will the world never cease to amaze us? In 2008, the Chinese village of Xuanping in Sichuan was completely destroyed by an 8.0-magnitude earthquake. At least that’s what everybody thought.

The town has resurfaced from the lake with flood waters retreating in July this year, prompting some of the town’s former residents to head back to pick up their belongings. After having their properties completely submerged for a good half a decade underwater, it must be pretty surreal.
