Jishin!

Did anyone else feel the baby earthquake at 12.19 today? It was so small I didn't feel the movement but I heard the walls and windows shaking. Only level 2 and centered in Shikoku.

Yeah, I heard it but didn't feel it!

Nope. I was probably having a coughing fit and didn't notice.

Hi... I live in Tokuyama and after it happened, I thought it was an earthquake... but then I thought it might've been the result of not getting enough sleep....

I felt it really strongly...it was awesome! my first one ever! (maybe i'm a little too excited about that...) I went home for my lunch break and when it happened my first thought was that people upstairs had dropped a big log or piano or something above me on the floor...and then realized I live on the second floor and no one lives above me. heh, heh...maybe i should've kept that thought to myself...

What was it on the richter scale?

Does anyone know?

Stubby... it was 2 on the Japanese scale. The Japanese scale exagerates the intensity so I would guess a number 1 on the Richter scale.

I also felt at Hikari High School, I am glad that it was small! When are you going to be at Mitsui again?
