Christchurch 2010 earthquake resulted in much liquefaction. During the earthquake, the shaking turned some of the layers of sand and silt to liquid mush. The ground above the liquidised layers spread laterally, cracking the ground, footpaths, roads, and houses.  Silt from layers below oozed upward, extruding out from under house foundations and surrounding the homes with thick layers of mud.
