A massive earthquake struck Nepal on Saturday.

One woman's pictures show the haunting before-and-after of the catastrophe.

Australian ABC News journalist Siobhan Heanue captured the calm before the quake and the destruction that followed, and she tweeted her photos soon after the disaster.

"I took these photos an hour apart. Was wandering when quake demolished temples before my eyes," she wrote. "Heartbreaking."

Heanue later tweeted videos showing the "utter devastation" in Nepal.

As of Saturday morning, the death toll across Nepal, China, India and Bangladesh was 718 and climbing.
