I’m all shaken up

Well, it took long enough for an earthquake to happen.  And it wasn’t a little one.  That was a long one!  I haven’t felt an earthquake in months, and just 10 minutes ago, there was a pretty big one.  The shaking lasted for about a minute or so.  According to the preliminary reports on TV, it was a magnitude 6.9 earthquake and 3 or 4 on the Japanese intensity scale (4 in Tokyo, Chiba and Ibaraki).   It wasn’t an intense shaking, but it was very long.  Did everyone enjoy it?

Update:  The earthquake happened near the Izu Islands southwest of here.  The USGS says it was a 7.1 magnitude earthquake.
