A rude awakening!


Accelerating Away
TOKYO — An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 5.7 jolted Tokyo and its vicinity in eastern Japan early Tuesday, the Japan Meteorological Agency said. There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage from the 3:18 a.m. quake.
It was a good one and woke me up last night and disturbed my beauty rest (not that I need any mind you).
Seriously though a good shaker, I'd say 15 to 20 seconds and almost got to the point in intensity where I thought staying in bed and riding it out wasn't such a good idea after all.

Wow, scary stuff that, one thing I always hope not to feel an earthquake like that. Glad your okay.

experienced a 3.2 in northern Canada in 1990 it was like some Pratt was shaking the bed.
I walked into breakfast the next morning and before I opened my mouth one of the teachers said "yes it was. 3.2!"
I have to say it was a very eerie experience!!:eek:
