See how people react (not really) in an earthquake.
Hurricane, tsunami, avalanche … all this makes us run away. But of an earthquake no. The danger does not come from a specific place; simply the ground begins to tremble beneath you and not much that can be done other than trying to escape from “side effects,” such as falls or things that may fall on you.
The video above recorded the exact moment of an earthquake in Nepal in 2015, which is not unheard of, but it’s worth playing just to see that sense of helplessness in the face of danger. Cyclists putting their feet on the ground, motorcycles leaning on, people crawling … a tense moment.
