Earthquake Video Shows Nepal's Parliament As It Is Rocked By Tremors

Three weeks after a massive earthquake killed over 8,000 people in Nepal, another powerful tremor shook the nation on Tuesday.

Video footage taken inside Nepal's parliament and distributed by Reuters shows the moment the 7.3-magnitude quake hit. As the camera begins to shake, the footage captures the shocked face of the speaker at the podium before the video cuts to panicked politicians darting toward the exits.

At least 42 people died in Tuesday's quake, which also triggered landslides and crumbled buildings, according to the Associated Press.

Aftershocks have rattled Nepal since the April 25 quake, and the U.S. Geological Survey warned at the time that there was a better than 50-50 chance of another strong earthquake hitting the country within the year, NPR reported.

Nepal is still reeling from effects of the initial earthquake. Many of those in need have received little or no aid, with relief efforts hampered by problems including a lack of infrastructure in remote areas and an ill-prepared government.
