aftershocks

The  aftershocks continue - we have felt more earthquakes in the past week than in the past 5 or 10 years.  Sometimes it's hard to know if it's a tremor or imagination.  Walking around you don't feel them - even ones today that were almost magnitude 6 were not noticeable. When at home, in a building designed to absorb the shock and shake,  they can be felt much more acutely.


I will post again over the weekend but for the moment this is today's list of tremors.  Not that a high magnitude does not necessarily translate as high on the Japanese scale which measures the effects on the ground - the shaking effect.  Of these we felt only the evening ones in Chiba and one early this morning.

Wow, Cecilia (is that right?) I was so stunned by your list of aftershocks I have copied and pasted it on my own blog, HisScribbler.blogspot.com and have linked my readers to your blog. I grew up in Japan and have spent 30 years in California, both part of the Ring of Fire, but I have never experienced anything like what you are all going through! You have our prayers.

No problem. It seems like a lot of the foreign media is hysterical about the nuclear situation and conspiracy theories about Japanese govt. dishonesty that the human tragedy in the north is being ignored....

Thanks for caring and bringing it to the attention of people calmly.
