Yeah, it was a big one. My building was really shaking and creaking. Pretty scary and lasted a long time. And the aftershocks are still going on as I'm typing.
I've been watching the news, and yeah, big tsunami. its probably gonna be pretty nasty, as about now is the time kids are gonna be around on the streets walking home from school.
I've got a good friend on the southern coast of Hokkaido where there's warnings of the Tsunami moving up to hit. I hope she's gonna be ok, at least they have some warning so they can evacuate.
Some English news and video:
Not a good way to start a friday morning...
Mad vibes to Japan and everyone affected by this monsterous earthquake :(
ahhh on the live stream cnn just announced ANOTHER 7.1 just hit off the shore again.
hope thats correct. Jesus christ. RIP to the ones who've passed
Alot of my colleagues were playing it kinda cool when the earthquake and aftershocks actually hit, as they feel them frequently. (And in Hokkaido, we're a long way from the epicentre) But now that the news is coming in about how serious it was, there are alot of serious and concerned faces. Alot of calls being made to relatives.
8.9 makes it the 7th strongest earthquake ever.
