Here we go again…


Today around lunchtime we were jousted up again with fear like many times last year. Honestly I did not expect to hear the same sound again this year… Mobile phones gave this wailing warning signal that a bigger earthquake is expected to hit in the next few seconds. At the end the ground shook less than expected – most likely barely a 2 in Tokyo, but the panic, alert level has not changed compared to last year.
According to the Mainichi Shinbun the earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 5.8 jolted northeastern Japan (based on the Japan Meteorological Agency) took place at 12:20 p.m. with a focus off the coast of Fukushima at a depth of about 20 kilometers. More details then otherwise about the location can be found on the link below:

Everything is fine and I have no reason to complain. Sometimes I simply wish all the memories related to March 11 2011 would never pop up again.

  1. Again I agree with your point, the individuals who complain are all to often the ones with something to hide.

    • Dear Lilian Cook Morona,

      thanks for your comment, but can you tell me more about your perceived connection of an earthquake and having something to hide?
      Looking forward to hearing more about your viewpoint,

      Sibylle
