Video exclusive of when the Haiti quake hit


euronews have obtained exclusive footage of the moment when Haiti’s catastrophic quake struck.

Inside the bakery, customers can be seen desperately trying to flee the shop when the strong seismic tremor hits.

The images are caught on CCTV cameras in the Delmas district in the Haitian capital Port-au-Prince.

The power of the 7 magnitude earthquake, the biggest to hit the Island in 200 years, is clearly visible outside. It is too much for the building opposite.

Experts say the effects of the quake were worse because it happened so near the surface.

Every story can be told in many ways: see the perspectives from Euronews journalists in our other language teams.
