One month after the disaster in March 2011, a powerful earthquake struck the city of Iwaki in Fukushima Prefecture.

[Prof. Katsuhiko Ishibashi, Kobe University] pointed out another problem at that time — Underground water shifted.

Large amounts of underground water gushed out of the ground in the middle of a residential area. […]

It shows no signs of ebbing and it’s continuing to flow strongly even 18 months later.

A shift in the fault placed a large amount of force on underground water and pushed it up to the surface all at once.

Ishibashi points out that if a large earthquake strikes, bedrock won’t function as a natural barrier.
