We’re okay

While we were eating breakfast this morning, the building began to rock again. It felt as though the ground was rolling beneath us but it was not particularly frightening. We later learned, however, that a powerful earthquake had hit northeastern Honshu, Japan’s main island and the one we call home. The quake, which measured approximately 7.0 on the Richter scale, was centred about 100 km north of the city of Sendai in a mountainous rural area. While there were several casualties, the outcome might have been much worse had it hit a more highly populated area.

The following are a few photos of the quake area borrowed from various online news sources.

  1. I don’t recall hearing about this in the news. It was a pretty large quake – wonder why they didn’t bother – I guess there needs to be huge loss of life for the news outlets.

I'd love to know that you were here! Please leave a comment.
