Venezuela was hit by its most powerful earthquake since 1900 on Tuesday night, adding to the turmoil wreaked by the country's economic crisis.

Cars were flattened by collapsing walls, supermarket shelves completely wiped out and gaping holes in the ground emerged all over the country as the tremors ripped through its major cities.

The earthquake's epicenter shook eastern Venezuela but also caused problems in Colombia and Trinidad, causing buildings to be evacuated as far away as Bogata.

The quake was placed at a 7.3 magnitude with its epicentre being 13 miles southwest of Irapa in the north of Venezuela, the U.S. Geological Survey said.
