💬 Comments on the video

The flying birds reminded me when I was in Guatemala in 2003, my family and I were in Antigua, Guatemala, at a restaurant when we saw street dogs start running down the street, then the cat inside the kitchen came out running and one of the ladies who was in the kitchen came out screaming in Spanish for everyone to get out saying "Temblor", which is earthquake in Spanish. Just as everyone in the restaurant started getting up the earthquake hit, it wasn't a huge earthquake, but it was very scary. Everyone was in the streets scared, but my family and I were absolutely amazed how those dogs and the cat sensed the earthquake before it happened, and the lady cook knew because she saw the cat and they keep little birds in cages in the kitchen to alert them. Antigua, Guatemala is prone to earthquakes, so people know when animals start running scared or start acting abnormal, everyone should start running as well.

How can we forget this day? This day is gonna remain in the deepest part of our memory. It's scary to imagine even now. Baishakh 12 2072 B.S. is the black day of our country Nepal. Rest in peace for those who died due to this massive disaster. 🙏

Observe... The ancient buildings didn't collapse and the new ones were like pack of cards.
In the beginning, the junction had Bhuddha's statue... Few seconds later the statue was still standing and the cover fell...
