Videos of a woman being swept away by a landslide on a mountain pass are being widely circulated after new footage suggests that she invited it on.

Santusa Nina Huallpa was swept over the side of a mountain by a forceful landslide in Huancarani, Paucartambo Province, in the southern highlands of Peru.

The 36-year-old's death was seen by several onlookers, with her remains later found buried under earth and stones by National Police in the community of Huayllatambo.

A new video taken by an eyewitness several yards away from where Huallpa was standing shows that she was aware of the onrushing landslip and seemingly beckoned it on (that's on the thumbnail, people).

In the footage, hundreds of people are gathered on a mountain road after earlier landslides made it hard to cross.

Huallpa is seen standing in front of the ravine with her arms raised, shouting at the moving earth mass.

Onlookers call her several times and shout 'be careful' and 'lady, it is all going to fall', but she pays no attention.

She even moves her footing slightly so that she is directly under the landslide's path.

The mudslide can be heard falling from the mountain in front of Huallpa and she waits for it with her arms raised. However, the earth falls short. Santusa's remains later found buried under earth and stones by National Police and firemen. In the footage, hundreds of people are gathered on a mountain road after earlier landslides made it hard to cross.

The second wave of earth comes and engulfs the woman, sending her over the edge of the mountain.

Local media suggested that she was drunk at the time, while some believe she was of sound mind and knew exactly what she was doing.

The region had been affected by heavy rains in the days leading up to the landslide.

The woman's body was taken to a morgue in Urcos while local authorities closed roads in the area to avoid a further tragedy.

More than 550 pilgrims have died during the hajj to Saudi Arabia. It is now +51 degrees Celsius there.

Among the dead pilgrims are four Russians: one man and three women. As reported by the Russian Consulate General, they died from natural causes related to their health conditions. The dead Russians will be buried in Mecca.

Most of the deaths – 323 people – came from Egypt. More than fifty deaths are also reported from Jordan. A total of 577 people were killed, according to AFP. The main cause of death is extreme heat. On June 17, the temperature in the Grand Mosque in Mecca reached 51.8 degrees Celsius. As Saudi authorities reported, more than 2,000 pilgrims had gone to hospitals due to the heat on June 16.

Landslide in Papua New Guinea killed more than 670 people

(Click on the link above to view video of aftermath of the slide)

The impact of Friday's landslide (May 24, 2024) in the isolated Enga province of Papua New Guinea was greater than initially thought. There are an estimated 150-plus houses now buried.

At least 670 people died.

Local residents have been forced to abandon 250 homes in areas not directly affected by the landslide after cracks began to appear in the ground.

There were a number of challenges facing teams trying to recover bodies, including reluctance by some grieving relatives to let heavy machinery near their loved ones.

People are using digging sticks, spades, large agricultural forks to remove the bodies buried under the soil.

Debris from the landslide, which includes large boulders, trees and displaced soil, is up to 8m (26ft) deep in some areas.

There is only one main road into Enga Province and Care Australia said debris had fallen across large swathes of it, limiting access to the rescue site.

Tribal violence along the main road could complicate relief efforts, according to Mr Aktoprak.

The unrest was unrelated to the landslide, adding: "In one day alone, a total of eight persons had been killed, five business stores and 30 houses had been burnt down."

Papua New Guinea has a population of more than 11.7 million people. With around 850 indigenous languages, it is the most linguistically diverse country on Earth, according to the World Bank.

EFFORTPOST Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster

Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well, welcome to my write up of the 1986 Chernobyl Disaster!

History of Events

Fourteen thousand people used to live here now it's a ghost town. Chernobyl was one of the most devastating catastrophes to happen in the last 100 years. With an immediate death toll of 30, with another 30+ casualties & more unrecorded in the following decades due to long term radiation poisoning. With the explosion completely destroying the Number 4 Reactor during a low power test along with contaminating 150,000 square kilometres of land across Russia & Ukraine. Radioactive particles were carried across winds, spreading across parts of Europe including Sweden, Finland, The United Kingdom & more. At approximately 1:23 AM a low power test was conducted on the Number 4 Reactor, as the test began an unexpected power surge hit the reactor. Despite the attempts of the facility employees using the emergency shutdown protocol the control rods seemingly jammed while going inside of the reactor causing a reaction starting a fire, leading to two large explosions, causing the entire roof to be blown off of the reactor. Immediately after that the plant goes into a blackout and radiation begins seeping into the air, multiple fires begin to start up, compromising the integrity of the building, causing walls to crumble and equipment to fail. At 1:28 AM the first firefighters respond to the scene completely unaware of the radiation in the surrounding area, little did they know this would be the biggest mistake of their lives. At 1:35 AM firefighters made their way up to the rooftop of the Turbine Hall to fight fires that were raging up top.

Grigorii Khmel, the driver of one of the fire engines, later described what happened:

We arrived there at 10 or 15 minutes to two in the morning… We saw graphite scattered about. Misha asked: “Is that graphite?” I kicked it away. But one of the fighters on the other truck picked it up. “It's hot,” he said. The pieces of graphite were of different sizes, some big, some small, enough to pick them up… We didn't know much about radiation. Even those who worked there had no idea. There was no water left in the trucks. Misha filled a cistern and we aimed the water at the top. Then those boys who died went up to the roof – Vashchik, Kolya and others, and Volodya Pravik…. They went up the ladder … and I never saw them again.

After the arrival of the first responding firefighters, thousands of police began to setup multiple roadblocks around the town of Pripyat and the Chernobyl facility also unaware of the radiation in the area. Around 6:35 AM, 37 fire brigades totalling out to 186 firefighters or so are now at the facility fighting fires and assisting with medical. Some of these men knew the risks yet all of them still risked their lives to stop the fires and rescue people in the buildings.

Helicopters began to drop tons and tons of sand, lead, clay & boron on the burning reactor in an attempt to stop the fires and radiation, it only slightly dropped the radiation levels not doing much also in the process of dumping sand on the fire a helicopter clipped a crane and 4 people died as a result. (Can be seen further down in post)

Chernobyl Suicide Squad

The "Chernobyl Suicide Squad" was a name given to three men who took on a mission that most certainly should've lead to their demise, they were tasked to go under the power plant in hazmat diving suits to swim through radioactive water so they could shut off steam valves to prevent a world wide situation. These three men are Alexei Ananenko, Valeri Bezpalov and Boris Barnov, as they swam through radioactive waters through the blown out basement of the power plant the radiation killed their flashlights. They somehow managed to still find the valves despite the darkness, closing them and preventing a massive meltdown. All three men survived the ordeal going on to live their lives, Boris Barnov died in 2005 from a heart attack but the other two are still alive to this day.

Evacuation of Pripyat

Around 43,000 residents were evacuated from the city of Pripyat due to how close it was to the radiation and explosion, they used buses to get people out of the city only giving them a short amount of time to collect things they needed or wanted to bring. People were under the impression that it was going to be a temporary leave from their homes but unfortunately as it turned out a majority of them never saw their homes ever again.

This here is an excerpt from the evacuation announcement that they sent out to the citizens of Pripyat:

For the attention of the residents of Pripyat! The City Council informs you that due to the accident at Chernobyl Power Station in the city of Pripyat the radioactive conditions in the vicinity are deteriorating. The Communist Party, its officials and the armed forces are taking necessary steps to combat this. Nevertheless, with the view to keep people as safe and healthy as possible, the children being top priority, we need to temporarily evacuate the citizens in the nearest towns of Kiev Oblast. For these reasons, starting from April 27, 1986 2 pm each apartment block will be able to have a bus at its disposal, supervised by the police and the city officials. It is highly advisable to take your documents, some vital personal belongings and a certain amount of food, just in case, with you. The senior executives of public and industrial facilities of the city has decided on the list of employees needed to stay in Pripyat to maintain these facilities in a good working order. All the houses will be guarded by the police during the evacuation period. Comrades, leaving your residences temporarily please make sure you have turned off the lights, electrical equipment and water and shut the windows. Please keep calm and orderly in the process of this short-term evacuation.

Aftermath of Chernobyl

After the explosion some residents of Pripyat could see the flames from afar, they burned in different colors due to the graphite fires inside of the reactor, additionally to that there were hundreds of different types of radioactive particles blowing through the air towards them with the main radioactive element being Caesium-137, nobody watching the flames that night survived due to the heavy amounts of radiation they took on (500 Roentgen, 4.385 Sieverts). The surrounding areas of Chernobyl were heavily affected by the radiation caused by the meltdown of the reactor, even to this day we still see effects of the events that happened almost 40 years ago.

Environmental Effects

Ecosystems were affected by the radiation in a variety of ways, plants and animals were contaminated, agricultural lands were ruined causing the mortality rates of farm animals to raise significantly. Plants and animals were genetically altered from the radiation, causing plants to change shapes amongst other things and animals to gain physical deformities such as two heads. After the explosion a newly discovered species of mushrooms were discovered in the reactor area they seemingly were attracted to the radiation, it came to be discovered that they could actually be used to break down the radiation in the area.

The Elephants Foot

This here is a mass of radioactive materials that formed after the meltdown of the reactor, it is considered by some to be one of the most dangerous radioactive formations in the world. This formation consists of material from the reactor core along with various other metals and components from the reactor, it is has now become a staple of Chernobyl attraction for tourists. Thankfully over the years the radiation has died down quite a bit but to this day it is still dangerous to be around it for more than 5 minutes. The Elephants Foot got it's name due to it's appearance.

Chernobyl Today

Chernobyl is now mostly overgrown with nature, it has become a hotspot for adventurers and explorers alike. There are few people who chose to stay living there mostly original inhabitants not wanting to leave everything behind, also people utilize the help of "Stalkers" to maneuver through Chernobyl.

Welp that is all everyone! I really hope you enjoyed my post I will probably come back to add more later on, Thank you for your time, much love!



Debra Stevens, Age 47, was delivering newspapers at her neighbourhood during a flood, getting back to her parked car to go back home, while she was in the car was swept away to a an alley(?) And got stuck in the trees.

(Photo of Debra.)

She called 911 and Her call was answered by then-dispatcher Donna Reneau, The dispatcher submitted her resignation notice two weeks prior to the incident. Debras' death occurred during what was to be the operator's final shift.

(Photo of Donna.)

Donna stayed on the call with Debra for about 22 minutes. At some points, the dispatcher told Debra that first responders were also saving other people from floodwaters and that many other emergency calls she needed to attend were coming in.

In a recording of the call, the dispatcher scolded Debra for “freaking out” as floodwaters filled her SUV. Debra repeatedly told the operator she feared she was going to die.

Later, Debra told the dispatcher she was worried the floodwaters would ruin her “brand new phone,” preventing responders from finding her.

“Do you really care about your brand new phone?” the dispatcher said. “I mean, you're over there crying for your life. Who cares about your phone?”

By the time first responders reached Debra and removed her from her car, at about 6 a.m. — about an hour and a half after she called 911 — she had drowned.


As stated Debra died via drowning before the first responders could even get to her.

Her family were grieving obviously, but didn't blame it on Donna for some reason.

What happened to Donna?

She received death threats to her cell phone, forcing her to change her number, no legal actions were taken against that bitch.

Decent sounding band gets hit by a tsunami from backstage :marseyzalgo:


Typhoon Maysak, known in the Philippines as Super Typhoon Chedeng, was the most powerful pre-April tropical cyclone on record in the Northwestern Pacific Ocean. The fourth named storm of the 2015 Pacific typhoon season, Maysak originated as a tropical depression on March 26. The next day, the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) upgraded the depression to a tropical storm and assigned it the name Maysak. According to the JMA, Maysak became the second typhoon of the year on March 28. The typhoon underwent explosive intensification into a Category 5 super typhoon on March 31, passing near the islands of Chuuk and Yap in the Federated States of Micronesia. After maintaining that intensity for 18 hours, Maysak weakened, made landfall over the Philippine island of Luzon as a minimal tropical storm, and dissipated shortly afterwards.

Maysak affected Yap and Chuuk in the Federated States of Micronesia, as well as the Philippines. The storm was responsible for four deaths in the Federated States of Micronesia alongside 10 injuries. Damage was estimated at $8.5 million (2015 USD). Estimates from the Red Cross suggested that there were 5,000 people in desperate need of food, water and shelter, and needed emergency assistance. Pacific Mission Aviation administrator Melinda Espinosa said "Most concrete structures withstood the fury but everything else was damaged.Later, the storm struck the Philippines, causing minimal damage.


Fire at the Comandante Ferraz Antarctic Station in Antarctica, on 25 February 2012 that killed 2 people and injured another.

The fire broke out in the machine room housing the power generators at approximately 2:00 am (Brasília time) on 25 February 2012.The Brazilian Navy opened an investigation to determine the exact cause of the accident. An initial report by the Ministry of Defense suggests that a short circuit might have triggered the explosion.

CHILD WARNING Tsunami Aceh 26 December 2004

This archive discusses the 2004 Aceh Tsunami tragedy

The 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami or better known as (Aceh earthquake and tsunami) occurred at 07 : 58 : 53 WIB on Sunday, December 26 2004. The epicenter was located off the west coast of Sumatra, Indonesia. The earthquake shock had a scale of 9.1–9.3 on the moment strength scale and IX (Great) on the Mercalli intensity scale. Megathrust earthquakes Undersea earthquakes occur when the Indian Plate is pushed downward by the Burma Plate. This tsunami wave killed around 227,898 people in 14 countries, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, Thailand, Somalia and the Maldives were the worst affected countries.


Indonesia was the first country to be seriously affected by the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami. Almost all of the victims and damage occurred in Aceh Province. The arrival time of the tsunami was around 15 to 30 minutes after the earthquake. According to the National Disaster Management Agency, around 130,000 people died and 37,063 people are missing. In addition, the UN estimates that 655,000 people are homeless and taking refuge in refugee camps scattered across the province. In the provincial capital of Banda Aceh, around 60,000 people were killed by the tsunami. More than a thousand bodies were found in the streets of the provincial capital of Banda Aceh, and placed in mass graves without waiting for identification as officials quickly tried to keep the situation from worsening.

the moment Aceh was hit by a tsunami

In less than a few minutes, a large wave suddenly arrived, approximately 30 meters high, which swept across the west coast of Sumatra and the small islands around it. It is estimated that this tsunami wave wiped out the land at a speed of up to 800 km per hour.

In just seven minutes, cities on the west coast of Aceh were filled with building rubble and corpses in tragic conditions.

Live broadcast at the time of the tragedy



around 130,000 people died and 37,063 people are missing.

Throughout 2005-2009, the reconstruction and rehabilitation process was carried out to restore the condition of Aceh City. During that time, many assisted living facilities were established, including various infrastructure and public facilities.

Two years after the tsunami, development is a major challenge and the aim is still to rebuild basic infrastructure services. After the completion of the rehabilitation and reconstruction period, Aceh continued to develop, characterized by an increase in the area of built-up areas and a reduction in agricultural areas and other vegetation cover. The development of Banda Aceh City in 2005-2011 still focused on the post-earthquake and tsunami rehabilitation and reconstruction program coordinated by BRR NAD-Nias. This period is a big challenge because we have to restore various sectors such as housing, educational facilities, health facilities, road network access, clean water access, and so on.


Hopefully this tsunami tragedy will not happen again.

CLiTPEELER (not really) sets fire at the historic Oceanside Pier in California for WPD 2nd birthday!!! 🥳

Massive fire breaks out at the historic Oceanside Pier in California about 40 min north of San Diego city.

The fire appears to be at the location of Ruby's Restaurant, a diner which is permanently closed.

Fire fighting boats are on the scene however they are having a very difficult time putting out the fire.

The original pier was build in 1888

The city of Oceanside spent $5.5 million last year to upgrade the 1,954 foot long pier by replacing old pipes and electrical systems.

1931 Jianghuai Flood in the Republic of China(full)


The 1931 Jianghuai Flood, also known as the 1931 China Flood and the 1931 Yangtze River Flood, occurred in several major rivers in China, such as the Yangtze River, the Pearl River, the Yellow River, and the Huaihe River. The affected areas ranged from the Pearl River Basin in the south to outside the Great Wall Pass in the north. It starts from northern Jiangsu in the east and reaches the Sichuan Basin in the west. The floods are widely regarded as the deadliest natural disaster on record

(The location of the disaster.)

pass by:

In 1931, climate abnormalities occurred in most parts of China. The Yangtze River, Yellow River, Huaihe River, Songhua River and Liaohe River all began to rain heavily for several consecutive months. The water levels of the Yangtze River, Yellow River and Huaihe River surged to above the standard of 53 feet. On average, it is 5.6 feet higher than the Hankou river beach.



In 1930, there was heavy snowfall in the winter in Central China. In 1931, it started to rain heavily from the spring (March 20th to June 21st), and the rainfall reached its peak in July and August. Seven typhoons occurred in Central China in July alone (an average of two a year). The rainfall at four weather stations along the Yangtze River in July was 60cm. The melting snow on the Tibetan Plateau increased the amount of water in the Yangtze River.

(China map in 1930s)



Floods were recorded in Chongqing on August 6, 1931, and high water level warning lines were recorded in Hankou on August 19. The water level exceeded the standard by 53 feet, which was an average of 5.6 feet higher than the Hankou river beach. The floods in the Yangtze River extended to the lower reaches, and the flood peak reached Nanjing on September 16. Simultaneous flooding in the Huaihe River north of the Yangtze River caused the embankment of the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal to collapse near Gaoyou Lake. One estimate suggested that 200,000 people drowned in their sleep in the early morning of August 26.

(Among them, dark green areas were the most severely affected, followed by yellow and light green areas. In the picture, it can be seen that the Wuhan area in Hubei, the Poyang Lake area in Jiujiang, Jiangxi, the Anqing and Wuhu coastal areas in Anhui, and the Nanjing and North Jiangsu areas are all covered in dark green.)

On August 10, 1931, the Shanghai "Shenbao" reported: "From May to August (Note: to August 9), severe floods occurred in Jiangsu, Anhui, Shandong and Henan provinces, with the affected area of 17,424 square kilometers in 16 counties in Jiangsu, and the number of affected households 410,750 households were affected, 1,035,551 people were affected, 38,200 people were relocated, 908 people died, and property losses were 24,871,118 yuan(7650297$). "

"Near Jiujiang, it is more than 20 feet wide and stretches as far as the eye can see."

"The river is now without water, the number of refugees continues to reach 5,000, there is nowhere to take them, many of them are sleeping on the streets, and death is a sad sight"

"Shenbao" reported

Save lives! (Newspaper cartoon) Source: "China Center Daily", September 3, 1931



The city of Taizhou, Jiangsu Province was flooded with 4 meters of water, and it took half a year for the floods to recede in the city. However, the floods in Lixiahe Plain (the plain in central Jiangsu Province) did not recede until the following spring.

The "shenbao" on April 23, 1932 stated: "After the floods in the Jianghuai, Yunhan and Han areas, the leftover people have no way to make a living. Since spring, they have been hit by a long drought and the vines have not grown. That is the area of Gaofu. The recession started early, and those who planted wheat had to wait until June to harvest; those who planted rice did not harvest until September or October. During these months, famine was inevitable in Anhui, Jiangsu, Hubei and other provinces. As a result, the vitality of the place was weakened, and the vitality of the people was almost gone. It was a spring famine, so the fields were starved to death. Because last year's grain was washed away by the water, there was no millet to eat, so the bark was peeled off, ground into coarse powder, and mixed with algae. , grass roots, leaves and other things, steamed and eaten, although it is difficult to swallow, it is better than eating in the stomach. Every river, stream and swamp, where algae is produced, is guarded by supervisors day and night, and no one is allowed to harvest algae secretly. In late spring, when all the bark and algae were eaten, the victims went to the fields in groups to peel off the barley seedlings and cook them at home. The skins are all swollen, and there are no one to bury them. The weather is dry and there is no rain, so epidemics are prevalent in remote areas with no sanitation facilities. Once an epidemic is infected, it will spread quickly to the whole family, and there will be no coffin to bury the dead. , corpses are often abandoned in the fields, and the tragedy is unbearable to see. The coffins are sold out, and large and small carpentry shops have to re-make coffins.”



In May 1932, cholera broke out.

"Ta Kung Pao" reported on June 2, 1932: "The locust plague has become more severe. Cholera has spread even more widely. According to materials released by the National Government's Department of Health and other relevant reports, more than 30 cities and counties have been affected, accounting for The top affected areas in all provinces across the country are: Shanghai, Nanjing...Tai County, Dongtai, Huaiyin, Huai'an, Funing, Yancheng, Nantong, Gaoyou, Suqian, Tongshan, Shuyang, etc. Gaoyou and Shaobo were the most severely affected by floods last year. The two counties in Jiangsu were also affected most severely by the epidemic. The floods in Jiangbei were the worst. The floods continued until the spring of the following year (Note: 1932), and the farmers lived in the water. The cold and heat invaded, and the moisture accumulated in the water. The corpses have been rotting for a long time, and once they are fumigated by the scorching sun, epidemics will occur. Cholera is prevalent in Gaoyou, Shaobo, Taixian, Dongtai, Taixing and other places, and the infection is rapid. Gaoyou and Shaobo are the worst cases. After a short delay, even whole families were killed. Tiger plague also occurred in Nanjing's Xiaguan and Xuzhou (Tongshan), and the victims died within a few hours. In Wuxi, more than 1,800 people were infected with tiger plague in the middle of July. About six to seven hundred people died.

"Shenbao" reported on October 20, 1932: "Due to the severe drought from 1928 to 1930 and the flood in 1931, many people died of starvation, which caused a nationwide epidemic, mainly cholera. This is The main characteristics of the disaster this year are that it is very severe in Shanghai and Nanjing, especially in Jiangxi. The epidemic is most serious in Tongguan, spreading from east to west, and is also affected in the west of Henan Province. Tianjin has been affected for more than a month. It has not retreated yet, but Baotou and Suiyuan on Pingsui Road have become epidemic areas. However, these are only well-known places that people pay attention to. In general, even if the epidemic occurs in urban and rural areas in the interior, it is not reported throughout the country. Hundreds of thousands of people have died from tiger plague across the country this summer. According to the Ministry of Health of the Nationalist Government, as of the end of July, cholera epidemic areas in Shanxi have reached 25 counties. According to statistics from the provincial authorities, 16 counties are the most severely affected. Second only to Jiangsu, it ranks second among all provinces in the country. In May, a type of pest was suddenly discovered in Huaiyin and Huai'an. It is about an inch long, has a soft body, has multiple pairs of abdomen and legs, and is green and brown in color. It lurks in the soil during the day. Night-time rodents eat autumn grass and wheat leaves and ears, and the number of farmland autumn grass and wheat crops damaged by insects is increasing day by day. Jiangsu has turned to severe drought this year after the floods last year, with more than 10 counties in Xuhai, Wuxi, and southern Jiangsu. In the Changzhou area, there has been no rain for several months. Farmland has dried up and seedlings have withered. Northern Jiangsu has become overrun with pests. Cholera has become more rampant. The entire county ranks first in the country in terms of the number of affected counties, with more than 2.1 million people affected by the floods in Jiangsu Province last year. As of the spring of this year, a large number of victims in northern Jiangsu were still sleeping in the hills and were homeless. After the floods receded, drought and drought continued, and locusts continued to appear in southern Shandong and northern Jiangsu in August. They were all over the fields. All the saplings of autumn crops were eaten, and there was no hope of harvesting agricultural products. The train from Jinpu to Sulu was blocked by locusts. You can imagine the severity of the disaster. Thousands of people died in Xu Hai.

The canals in the north of the Yangtze River are gradually drying up, water transportation is becoming more and more inconvenient, and fire alarms are frequent. There is no rain for two months in areas south of the Yangtze River. The weather is extremely dry, and the farmland is cracked. Changzhou and Nantong are also affected by drought. . Due to successive floods and droughts, the weather is not correct, resulting in the proliferation of pests. "

Gaoyou Lake lacks a dike and reaches Taizhou. Thomas Harnsberger, chief pastor of the Southern Presbyterian Church in Taizhou, Jiangsu Province, wrote a report to the Shanghai Huayang Relief Society, suggesting that the breach in Gaoyou be blocked, otherwise the downstream flooding would not be solved. The board of directors of the Huayang Free Relief Society agreed. In February 1932, He Boxui, as the director of post-disaster reconstruction appointed by the Free Relief Society, went to Gaoyou with 400,000 silver dollars and worked until the late autumn of that year. Buddhist layman Lin Yin gave great support. It is supervised by Wang Shuxiang, a doctor of water conservancy engineering and the elder of the Kuomintang. Wang Shuxiang summoned 15,000 workers to build the embankment purely by hand (no machines).

Man captures a EF-4 Tornado approaching his house

What happened?

On April 9, 2015, Clem Schultz, aged 85, was at his home in Fairdale, Illinois, with his wife, Geraldine, known as Geri.

"We just finished supper," Schultz, 85, told ABC News. "My wife called me in the kitchen. She said, 'Look out the window.' And sure enough I looked out -- we see this big, ugly tornado coming."

"It looked like it was going to miss us," he said.

Geri stayed in the kitchen while he went upstairs to get some lanterns.

As the loud tornado loomed, Schultz decided to start recording cell phone video.

The video shows the tornado move closer and the sky darken, before the picture goes black.

"Up until the time the house started moving, it still looked to me like it was going to go to the west -- and miss us," he said. "Suddenly, I realized I was wrong.

I was standing next to the chimney when the whole place went down," Shultz said.

The chimney fell on top of him; he remembers he was buried in a pile of rubble.

"All of a sudden it kind of got quiet," Schultz continued. "'I asked myself 'Are you dead?' But then I said, 'No you can't hurt when you're dead,' and I hurt."

He said he later learned he had a crushed vertebrae.

As several people helped Schultz dig his way out, he said one of them told him, "'Don't look down because your wife is under you -- and she's dead.'"

He looked for her pulse, but couldn't find it.

Clem also said that he wont be living in Fairdale anymore. However some time later, he did return to Fairdale with a Black Shepard to meet his former neighbor, Joe Wiegand. Clem didn't plan to rebuild the house because of his "memories" and looking at moving close to his kids.

Why did Clem keep recording and did not seek shelter?

The reason Clem wants this to be out there is to "save lives". Clem also stayed in the attic because he thought the tornado was tracking away from him, but when he realized it was coming for him; it was already too late. He was unable to move fast because of his age.

Joe Wiegand

After the incident, Clem showed the infamous video to Joe, this is what the conversation was like:

CLEM: About two minutes into this, my house came down and knocked the phone out of my hand and it kept recording.

JOE: So now you are still standing up taking video right now?

CLEM: Right about now is when I realized ‘uh-oh.'

JOE: See the shaking? Your house is shaking apart right now, isn't it?

CLEM: Yeah. At this point, I was laying under several feet of rubble, wondering why I was still alive.

CLEM: He said ‘okay, now you're by this beam, I want you to sit down and put your feet down here on the floor, but don't look down.' I said ‘why don't look down?' He said, ‘because your wife is right under you and she's dead.'

JOE: You look down?

CLEM: Of course. I reached down, and got her pulse…no pulse. We had propane leaking. They told me, ‘you gotta get out of here.'

Who's dead and who's not?

Clem miraculously survived with a broken vertebra. He was send to a hospital in Madison for back issues, likely due to the tornado. His wife named Geri Schultz(aged 67) and a neighbor named Jacklyn Klosa(aged 69, the house in front that Clem filmed was Jacklyn's house) both were killed. His dog named Missy was uninjured but went suddenly missing after.
