Earthquake Update

I’m just writing to let everyone know that things are fine where I live.  No damage at home, other than the dining area light hanging at an angle, a few things knocked over and all the sliding doors were open.  I got back to Shonandai around 10:50pm last night.  Thankfully, the Sotetsu Line started up, and I could take the train home.  Today, there are still aftershocks going on quite frequently, but not as big as yesterday.  With 5 nuclear reactors in trouble, and a possible meltdown happening at one, electricity supplied to the Tokyo area is getting really tight, and there may be blackouts in many places.  There’s also a possibility of an aftershock that is around magnitude 8 in the future.  We have to continue to be prepared for that.  To anyone living in the affected areas, try to conserve electricity.

    • I’m doing fine. Just sitting at home, watching the news. Schools are closed today. I couldn’t make phone calls, but I could use the internet on my phone yesterday. You take care, too.
