Easy to fake using animated FFD/Control points on soft selected vertices.

Skin with stretchy bones maybe would give you more control ?

Apply voxelizer to your mesh could be something to try....

Just out of interest what have you tried ?...other than looking for the "Creat Siesmic Wave Effect Like the one on Youtube" button ;)

Haaa, i told you that i'm a newbie!!! I just try a bunch of modifiers and obtained nothing :-).
basically i'm a modeler, the animation side of things it's a bit criptic for me :-)

Ok experimenting can be fun too when you get the result, if you get stuck I'll post some screens, at least your trying.
