7.4 Magnitude Earthquake hits Japan

I hope this isn’t going to be as bad as it sounds.

It wasn’t.

Now downgraded to a 7.1, which is good.

I can’t imagine what they’re going through right now. The biggest I’ve been in is a 4 or 5, so I can’t wrap my head around either a 9 or the uncertainty of the aftershocks.

Campion, the biggest I’ve been in was 6.7 and I can’t imagine a 9 either. Because, let me tell you, 6.7 was more than big enough for me.

This quake was the same strength in Aomori City as the first huge one was. It was scary and we lost power for half a day, but otherwise everything is fine. ::relief::

I’m glad the tsunami warning passed without incident, at least.
