FREAKED Out Tourists: Earthquake at Volcano… The Video

This one speaks for itself.

Watch right at the end as you literally see a bunch of tourists just taking off!

Being at the place… they must have thought they were going to lose their lives!

I had to look at the recent Earthquake page and I found this Earthquake today… However, this video was posted yesterday on youtube.

A minor earthquake occurred at 11:16:39 AM (HST) on Thursday, September 11, 2008 .
The magnitude 3.1 event occurred 7 km (4 miles) N of Ka`ena Point.
The hypocentral depth is 9 km ( 5 miles).

Distance From Crater: Pu`u `O`o Crater – 7 km (4 miles) SSW (202 degrees)

David Corrigan from Big Island Video News thinks it could be a fake…what do you think?

A further look at recent Earthquakes showed this pattern in the last few days:

I don't know why this is making my post look funny.

  1. I remember my first earthquake. It was in the middle of the night and I was not sure if I was dreaming or what the heck is happening. I do think that tourist are sometimes oblivious to the possibility of an earthquake during their vacation. I guess those guys will remember Puna for a long time.

  2. … I’m a little suspicious of the authenticity of this scene. Lots of smiles and giggles to me! Not to mention the camera shake starts after the “woa, what was that!” comment.

    I would love to see tourist video of the real thing. If its out there, I know Damon will find it!

    Damon – If you look at the end of this clip… you will see other people running not involved with the clip.
