Recently emerged CCTV footage shows moment 7.5-magnitude earthquake hits Indonesia island

Two weeks after the devastating earthquake struck Central Sulawesi in Indonesia on September 28, CCTV footage recording the moment is starting to emerge.

This video, captured in a cookware shop called 'Smart Kitchen' in South Palu at 6:03 pm that day, shows goods and furniture falling as people run for safety. The footage then crackles, then stops, due to electricity going out.

The death toll from the earthquake has increased to over 2,000, local reports state. Soil liquefaction, a process that occurs when land becomes saturated with water and is weakened, swallowing structures in quicksand-like mud, has destroyed thousands of hectares of land and left families across the island homeless.
