LAWMAKERS IN NEPAL were forced to scurry from the parliament chamber today as a 7.3-magnitude earthquake struck the country.

The quake follows the country’s deadliest earthquake in 80 years, which hit the country just weeks ago. Dozens have been killed in today’s earthquake and aftershocks.

As the video above shows, members of parliament in Kathmandu were sitting in the chamber, with one speaking from a podium at the front. As the tremors begin, people can be heard screaming and seen running from the room as the lights start to dim.

No injuries at the parliament building have been reported but the strong tremors caused buildings to collapse and triggered landslides in a number of areas.
