The devastating set of huge earthquakes that struck Japan last week is having an unexplained side effect: copious amounts of a mysterious foam-like substance is covering the streets.

According to FOX News:

Twitter users began posting photos of the unexplained foam shortly after the tremors receded.

Some have speculated that an underground pipe had burst, although the origin is still unclear.

A city spokesperson told The Independent they did not know anything about the bubbles. What exactly the bubbles are made of is still a mystery. One Twitter user called it “disgusting.”
