Showing us how an earthquake shakes

 

Showing the effects of a quake isn't easy, but iReporters found whatever ways they could. They raced to document the water sloshing in their pools, chandeliers shaking and roads and other objects affected by the quake. Their stories were incorporated into TV coverage and a video featured prominently on CNN.com, including sarahklaus21's footage of clouds of dust rising from mountains in Mexico and psfinest's video inside a collectibles store. woooosh submitted surveillance video of rocking cars at the beach, while TheVideoMan incorporated security camera footage into videos featuring interviews with people who experienced the shaking.

 

The quake generated a lot of online buzz throughout the affected regions, especially since it happened right when some families were celebrating Easter and holding holiday egg hunts. A humorous Jeanne Moos video captures the lighter side of seismic activity at CNN iReport and on YouTube, including swinging model planes filmed by gagboo59 and a baby's first earthquake as documented by csumel.

 

We're really impressed with the creative ways the community illustrated something that isn't easy to illustrate, and we hope you'll poke around and take a look. And, don't forget to (safely) keep those cameras rolling if you see news near you.

Good job iReporters. Just hearing the word 'earthquake' does something. Seems like more are taking place but learned not really. Just more in populated areas. Sure seems like a lot more.
