Earthquake in Japan
Our family was enjoying a quiet Sunday evening in our Tokyo apartment preparing for our short trip to Singapore the next day when an earthquake hit Japan. The high rise building shook and our lighting fixture swayed for over a minute – it was very scary indeed!
The Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) reported a 6.9 magnitude earthquake occurred at 19:56 JST south of the Japan islands at a depth of 340 km. In Tokyo, a JMA Seismic Intensity of 4 was recorded, although it felt stronger than that.
No injuries or damage reported so far. No power or service interruptions in our building, TV and the Internet was still working so I went to Twitter and searched for “earthquake” and “Tokyo”.
You gotta love the post “Great instincts, Tokyo. First tweet, then duck for cover”. That’s too funny!
