Underwater Mics Capture Earth's Terrifying Rumble in Japan Quake

You've seen the shocking video of Japan's 9.0 magnitude earthquake and its devastating aftermath, but a newly released audio recording offers yet another glimpse of mother nature's awesome power.

A network of underwater observatories belonging to the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) surrounding the epicenter of the massive earthquake captured rare and haunting audio of the earth's violent rumbling.

"Equipped with hydrophones for monitoring underwater sounds in real-time over the Internet, the LIDO [Listening to the Deep Ocean Environment] system has been continuously recording the sound of the earthquake and its aftershocks," Science Daily reports.

The short video/audio clip tells yet another story of the terrifying experience of the Japanese people as the earth shook beneath their feet. There's a peak of underwater noise early on, then consistent rumbling before yet another wave of strong activity.
