Video, main shock seismic record lined up with security camera footage

Engineering firm Exponent created an interesting video by synchronizing the recording of the main shock by station KATNP with video footage recorded in a building nearby (note: seismic instrument is NOT in the same building). You can see the server racks move relative to the floor (the floor is moving of course, so is the camera), roughly matching the sense of motion implied by the seismic record. Their report is here: Exponent post describing creation of video

You can see  a bigger version of the video on Jim Luetgert’s (retired U.S.G.S.) Facebook page: link to Facebook video.
