Just popping into Lj to say I am fine. The earthquake was a long way up north, although it is the longest earthquake I have ever experienced - it went for 3-4 long minutes (or so) and I was kind of stunned and scared about that. I checked the Jpn meteorological site for the details and then went to the loo and it was STILL going! I kept anticipating it stopping - but No! It didn't! ... for what seemed like an incredibly long time I kept looking outside and watching the lamp post sway madly and my building was doing the same, which is a good sign.

Swaying means rubber in the foundations or some such high-tech building thingy. Japan has excellent earthquake- resistant tech, building codes and much better responses since the Great Hanshin-Awaji (Kobe) quake. It wasn't hugely strong where I am (just looong) and nothing shook loose. Nagoya is also protected by peninsulas, so we didn't get tsunami either.

Hope everyone is well!

Yeah it's been a bit of a shock, but I am unaffected, so I thought I would post to set people's minds at rest. The world just seems so full of natural disasters recently!

Your post was the first notice I'd heard of the quake at all--and now I see the reports rolling in of the devastation and the aftermath. It is too terrible for words--I'm glad you're okay!

Glad you´re okay! I thought of you when I was at work - I couldn´t remember where you live and LJ is blocked there so I couldn´t check.

A belated "glad to hear you're okay". Glad to hear you live in a safe area. I hope that what's happening now is the last of it and Japan can begin to recover.
