Intense shaking during an earthquake can turn water-saturated sediments into a slurry- a phenomenon known as liquefaction. This can cause buildings, cars and other heavy objects lying on top of what were formerly stiff, dry sediments or sand, to sink or tilt. Read more about it in our blog or use Temblor to find out if your house is in a liquefaction zone.
