The power of the Philippine earthquake on video

A bystander captured the moment a bell tower of Philippines’ oldest church in Cebu, the Basilica Minore del Santo Nino, collapses during the devastating 7.2-magnitude earthquake on October 15. The amateur video captured the tower’s disintegration as onlookers screamed and scrambled to avoid the chaos. The church crumbles like a sandcastle at the start of the video, demonstrating the massive force of the quake.

Another video from security camera footage shows the intensity of the quake that caused water from an in-ground swimming pool to crash on to the deck in heavy waves.

On October 18, the death toll of the quake rose to 161, with 375 people injured. The bulk of the casualties were in Bohol province. Nearly 3,000 houses were destroyed and another 16,000 were damaged in Bohol and Cebu. Around 1,300 aftershocks were recorded.
