Twin Earthquakes Blanket Japanese City With Mysterious Foam [Photos & Videos]


After disastrous tremors from a 7.3-magnitude earthquake shook the city of Fukuoka on April 15 – just a day after a 6.5-magnitude earthquake rattled the same area – the streets of downtown Tenjin and Imaizumi were covered with a thick layer of mysterious foam, sending shivers down the spines of its residents.

While people posted photos and a video of the unexplained froth on Twitter, which led many to wonder what may be behind the snow-like layer engulfing Fukuoka, there are speculations that one of the many tremors may have caused an underground water pipe to burst. Others have suggested that the foam was caused by a spillage of fire-fighting foam; however, no fire trucks were spotted in the area, and no one has come up with an official confirmation as of yet.

The two powerful earthquakes killed 48, injured over 1,100, left 410,000 homes without water and 200,000 with no power, and destroyed as many as 9,900 homes, leaving more than 100,000 residents in shelters. 765 aftershocks have hit the Kyushu Island since the 6.5-magnitude earthquake on April 14. The tremors also triggered an eruption in Mount Aso, Japan’s largest active volcano.

  1. maybe it’s fracking foam. with today’s oil drilling abilities someone from miles out to see could drill and pump fracking foam down into the fault line to make it slippery. We’ve had earth quakes in Ohio and Pa because of this. once they stopped fracking the earth quakes stopped. mind you they were small. but that’s what they finally figured was causing them.

  2. “Others have suggested that the foam was caused by a spillage of fire-fighting foam”
    um, NO. it is a process that happens in the truck, it is not just foam in the truck, it is a water tank, with a detergent reservoir. they mix before coming out of the hose.

  3. What if it’s just a chem-company, that dumped shit in the mouth of the volcano –thinking it’d be long before it’d erupt, which in turn spewed it all over the town.
    Lava + whatever that shit was might have caused this simple foam reaction, right?

    Maybe that, maybe Rick’s idea with the fracking…

  4. Dear Noomad , a volcanic eruption doesnt causes such large earthquake in such a massive area.
    Earthquakes are because of movement of techtonic which are just beneath you.
    Fn idi everywhere !!
