Dynamic liquefaction, a key process that generates landslides in earthquakes, especially for example in the loess of China, also sinks large ships
Two videos have appeared on Youtube showing an amazing liquefaction landslide in mine wastes in Pharkant, Burma in April
The Cook Strait earthquake sequence of the last three days has generated a small number of landslides and liquefaction failures
A remarkable video has emerged on Youtube showing liquefaction occurring in real time during the Sendai earthquake.
Following up on my post yesterday on the nature of the liquefaction damage to the main container port in Port-au-Prince, CNN has a video from the site.

UPDATE: there is a video of this site here. One of the major impacts of large earthquakes in coastal areas can be the damage to dock facilities caused by liquefaction. The process of seismic liquefaction is well-explained elsewhere, so I won’t reprise that here. However, if liquefaction does occur then high levels of damage can occur to the very facilities needed to bring aid into the affected area. Given the …
Youtube has a rather cool video of an animation of the effects of a large earthquake on the harbour side area of Seattle. The main point is I think to show the effects of the earthquake on the elevated roadway, but it also shows liquefaction failures of the fill behind the sea wall: Pretty neat – certainly a useful teaching tool.
On 7 August 2020 a landslide in Gokseong County, S. Korea killed 5 people. A new paper (Choi et al 2021) suggests that this was triggered by the failure of an under construction embankment during heavy rainfall
