Video: Japanese Earthquake Earth Compression

This is an interesting video of the earthquake onset, taken by Brent Kooi, in Chiba City Japan.  The earthquake wasn't as devastating in this video as it was in other Japanese cites, but this video shows the perfect example of ground compression.    Apparently a water main breaks during the earthquake, and water starts to seep up and collect on top of the ground.  At 1:57 in the video, you can see where the compressions, caused by treh earthquake, causes the ground water to shoot up like small fountains.
