Watch an earthquake slosh a swimming pool in Mexico City


Wow, that was quite a bit more dramatic than I thought it would be!


I imagine the right earthquake and the right swimming pool could end up with some spectacular standing waves

Here’s another one, the 7.2 quake that struck SoCal and Baja on April 4, 2010.

This is the pool at the Hotel Crown Plaza in Mexicali, from a closed-circuit camera, I pasted the video link so it starts at 0:46, the moment the quake hits.


Surf’s up! That’s a lot of water motion. Seems to be only across the width of the pool. A good way to tell which way the fault line is located relative to the pool.
