Well, there you go there seems no photos detailing the 16th March 1956 earthquake in Lebanon which apparently happened at 9 P.M. (according to my mother). Per Wikipedia: "The epicenter was located in the south of Lebanon in the Chouf District. Six thousand homes were destroyed and another 17,000 were damaged. The number of persons killed was 136." Actually the whole Wikipedia entry is worth reading so why not go there? Also there is a short youtube thingy also worth checking
