CCTV captured the moment the Christchurch quake hit. The “rescue” operation is now a “recovery” operation, with more than 200 victims from 20 countries.

Strange videos have emerged in the wake of the Feb. 22 earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand, showing empty grocery stores shaking and disgorging all their products from shelves onto the floor. It’s like Paranormal Activity without actors.
