As we tweeted @doubtfulnews earlier this week, ghost hunters captured real live anomalous data on video during the earthquake in Oklahoma. We took a pass to report it on the website then but it seems to have captured the interest of others.
At the moment an earthquake rattled Oklahoma over the weekend, a team of paranormal researchers was inspecting a Mexican restaurant in Oklahoma City for ghosts. Their video cameras captured no spirits but did document the most intense temblor ever recorded in the state, producing footage that made the local news.
The new system was being put to use for the first time upstairs at El Alex, a Mexican restaurant, on Saturday night when the ghost hunters heard an unusual sound.
“It just started rumbling,” Mr. Doyon said. “I thought the client’s ice maker had kicked in. Then the sound got louder and louder and everything started moving. It seemed to go on and on.”

I’m not sure why this is “news”, really, but it does highlight this questionable claim:
Mr. Doyon […] called it exceedingly rare to capture a ghost on video.
In today’s world where there are cameras everywhere, recording everything, we get great video records we might not normally get. But, Mr. Doyon, I’m afraid we do not have a verifiable video record of ghosts.
