Just before going home I had 2 options....the yamanote line...the circular loop train that runs ABOVE , or the underground.
Well, I thought, I hate the underground, just in case of an eq....but the yamanote will take me longer, and will be packed....its just 14 mins on the
underground....I`ll be OK...
I had this thought all the time....
So, anyway, I took the underground...the EXACT moment I got off it, I got the alarm from my phone, telling me there had been an eq.
Im registered to that, so, I get all the minor ones too...
I took a look at it and it said 7.8 (at first). Japanese scale 5.,,,
I dashed out the station, the stairs never seemed to end....
THe ground was moving and noone took any notice at all.
I started stopping people saying Jishin, Jishin....(eq....eq)....they all ignored me, until one guy stopped and with me witnessed the ground and
signboards swaying and rocking around us. He tried to call his friends on the phone, to no avail....All phone lines were stopped.
This is nothing compared to what we went through on 3/11....of course!
Aftershock of 3/11 or precursor of something major to come...what amazed me was the total detachment of people....Oh , just another eq....THeir
buildings dont tend to fall down, so thats all they care about.... How many even gave a thought about the epicenter of this big one today, wondering
if it could affect the degraded nuclear plant in Fukushima??? OK, I witnessed this one in the street , so being in a building is totally different,
Let`s just hope it was just a one off rocking... ANd no more aftershocks!!!!!!
