    The Philippines recent quake was the cause / source.

    It was reported by a number of media.

    Whether the pool failed or the water sloshed out, I know not. Probably the latter.

    I've seen the effect in my own above-ground pool.

    A quake induced wave motion emptied the pool by at least one third, as the water sloshed over the edges.

    The in-pool water wave motion continued for quite a while after the quake stopped, too.
