I’m doing ok! There was a major earthquake today off the coast of northern Honshu, near Sendai. It was magnitude 8.9, with large aftershocks. There was a 7 metre tsunami that devastated the east coast of northern Honshu around Miyagi prefecture. Tokyo felt it very much. I was at work in Yokohama when it hit, and it was massive. A lot of shaking for about 3 minutes. It started off slowly, but became quite violent. A few books fell down at work, but that’s all. I’m still waiting to go home, and I have no idea what kind of mess I’ll find there.
This earthquake is the largest earthquake ever recorded in Japan, and the 7th largest in the world. I can’t believe I experienced it.
