Capturing a natural disaster on a video camera or cellphone is one thing, but to see one through the objective and unassuming eye of a security camera is another altogether. Often times there is no build-up, no panic; it's just business as usual until that one moment when everything goes crazy. With some speculating that natural disasters are on the rise, it's surely just a matter of time before more of these awe-inspiring videos roll in.
