Experience the Magnitude 7.3 Vanuatu earthquake

The New Zealand Herald has published  a live footage video of Tuesday’s earthquake in Vanuatu as it happened.

Luckily this house was earthquake-proof build. In the video you will see the extreme importance of fixing cubbards, closets, etc. to the wall.

Read also an article in the same New Zealand Herald of  the earthquake experience of Ben McKenzie, who has been working for the New Zealand High Commission in Vanuatu.  It gives a very good impression of what people live through.

“For a good 10 seconds, you almost couldn’t walk – it was throwing you around that much and people in the supermarket had to be evacuated because of all of the damage that was being done,” he told Ten Network in Australia.
