WATCH: This is What Happens to a Swimming Pool in a Strong Earthquake

Earthquakes are some of the most dangerous natural disasters because this could lead to more dangerous consequences, including crumbling of various infrastructures, landslides, avalanches, tsunamis, sinkholes, and so many others.

Now, everyone knows how difficult it can be to even stand during particularly strong earthquake. That’s why we are all advised to duck and stay low because the movement could actually make us fall over!

But have you ever wondered what could happen if you were in the water during a strong one?

Well, there’s this video from 2015 of what exactly happened to a pool in Nepal when a very strong earthquake hit the area. While this is an old clip, the video has gone viral again in the wake of the quakes felt in Batangas and other parts of Luzon in the Philippines.

In this clip taken by a CCTV camera focused on the pool, several swimmers could be seen having fun in the water. But the usually tranquil water of the pool soon began to create waves similar to that seen in beaches!

Now, what makes that extra dangerous because the concrete walls of the pool are definitely not the same as the sand at the beach – and you could easily hurt yourself on the edge of the concrete pool, get slammed on the hard wall, or drown in the deep water!

While most of the swimmers were able to get out and run away from the pool as fast as they could, two swimmers were left behind. It was really quite horrific to watch them get battered against the pool wall and nearly drown in the swelling waters.

It was a good thing that they eventually managed to get out of the pool, to safety. Whew!

What to Do During an Earthquake?

As much as possible, do not attempt to run during an earthquake – unless you really need to do that, such as if a tall structure is about to crumble and hit you!

Because the ground is still shaking and you could get hurt as you stumble, it is best to first cover your head, duck, and stay low on the ground until the shaking stops.

As soon as the quake is over, rush outside the building by using the stairs. Steer clear of buildings and other tall structures, especially if they are old and unstable.

Caught On Cam: House That Was Once Used As A Hospital Has Uninvited Guests

It’s easy to say that there is a ghost or something paranormal in your home. Sometimes when you feel something, or you “know” that there is something in your house, no one will believe you even if you told them.

Some ghosts are caught in CCTV cameras like this one who smashed a glass door or this poltergeist who has been terrorizing a school corridor, which was caught on camera twice.

On the other hand, some ghosts also show themselves on casual photos and videos. It is still unknown how ghosts are able to show themselves in photos and videos.

This is why a lot of people are setting up cameras to capture what it is that has been bothering them.

In Kent, an eerie moment was caught in that camera that was originally set up to watch over the family’s two French bulldogs.

The house in which the ghost was caught was a Grade II listed building that was once used as a hospital. The family who is living there is now convinced that their house was haunted and that they are sharing it with uninvited guests.

While the family was sleeping, the camera caught a misty figure that came through the door at the back. The owner was wondering what it was because the door where it came from was a private garden.

“Being a skeptic I was thinking of what else it could be but our living room backs onto a private garden so there was very little it could be.”

It appeared to glide from the door to the adjacent room, away from the camera’s view.

But only to return from the bottom of the screen to glide around the living room again.

The family shared that there were also times that one of their dogs would growl without apparent reason.

“On the run-up to the footage our youngest dog kept staring into our hallway and on a couple of occasions growled but we just dismissed this and thought he was still settling in.”

The owner of the house, Stephen Lee, did not believe at first, but after having a couple of eerie things happen after they discovered the video, he is now ready to accept that it could be something supernatural.

“Since the footage we’ve had a couple of eerie things happen – especially since we’ve put up the Christmas tree where lights have flickered on and off consecutively.”

It’s Christmas time again and Christmas pageants are being performed in various places, most especially in schools where kids play the part of the people (and animals) in the Christmas story. For many parents, this is among the highlights of the Christmas program as they watch their kids retell the story of Christmas.

But when it comes to kids, you should really expect the unexpected – just like this school Christmas pageant which turned into an adorable brawl when a kid playing a sheep got a little bored on stage and decided to ‘kidnap’ baby Jesus so she could play with the dolly herself. LOL.

As expected in this modern world, there were lots of cameras to record the whole proceeding, including the adorable suspect’s mom.

Tana Benson was recording the Christmas pageant starring the kids at First Baptist Church of White Pine in White Pine, Tennessee. Her daughter, 2-year-old Teegan, plays a sheep.

But as the choir sang “Away in a Manger”, little Teegan got a little bored just sitting there by herself and watching the other kids with the dolly baby Jesus in the middle. She stood up and took the blanket off before taking the baby Jesus out of the manger, cuddling the dolly while slowly dancing on the stage.

The ‘kidnapping’ sent the crowd in a fit of giggles but a horrified ‘Mary’ stood up to take her baby back from the kidnapper sheep. This turned into an adorable brawl that got more laughs from the audience. An indignant Mary was able to get the baby back but the cheeky little sheep ‘kidnapped’ him again.

When the adorable brawl appeared to turn into a full-fledged fight, the adults realized it was time to intervene.

The amused sheep’s mom just had to post this on Facebook, saying this is certainly a program she will always remember. Within days, the video received 10 million views and over 258k shares on social media. A lot of people were certainly amused by this cheeky little sheep.

If you have a toddler at home who loves watching YouTube videos, there is absolutely no way that you haven’t heard about Ryan’ Toy Review.

It is a YouTube toy-review channel wherein the host is a kid himself. The kid is the 7-year-old Ryan who features toys and board games that they actually play with.

Ryan, together with his Mommy and Daddy started his channel when he was three. He started as just another fan of toy-review videos when he asked his parents if he can have his own channel.

They created one and posted videos of him they started in March 2015.

Their first video was of him buying a toy in the store, going home and then playing with it. As of today that video already has over 30 million views.

By July 2015, they posted a video with Disney’s Cars theme and it went viral.

The channel then grew to a whopping 10 million subscribers! The subscribers alone are enough to give them $1 million a month. What more with the other views and advertisements.

Ryan made it to the Forbes’ annual list of highest-earning YouTube celebrities.

Before, their videos were only of him and his Daddy. Mommy was always behind the camera and just taking the video.

When Kate and Emma learned to walk, their whole fandom rejoiced with them. Unlike Ryan which we first saw when he was already 3, the viewers were able to watch Kate and Emma and all their milestones.
