VIDEO: Japan Quake Central Park, Tokyo and Causes Cracks

Around 2:00 AM last night me and some friends got home and opened CNN to see the news in Japan. As we were discussing the destruction around the world, CNN began playing this amateur video taken by Bret Kooi in Central Park in Tokyo. The park is situated on reclaimed ground. It’s filled in harbor from what we’re told.

Here is the video showing the ground cracking open, liquefaction, water gushing up through the ground. It’s really scary and crazy to witness from a video so imagine you see this up in person.
