Big Quake Aftershock
Still don’t know how big, but it looks like it was centered in Tohoku. Sachi and I found out by having our iPhones buzz at us. Kind of a scary sound, like a a zapping siren.
Sure enough, moments later, we felt the shaking start. It was kind of like being on a truck on a bumpy road.
TV is reporting a 7.3. More soon.
Looks like it was centered in the ocean off of Sendai. This post did not go up, and I am having difficulty reaching certain sites.
There is a tsunami warning for Tohoku, with the greatest danger around Sendai—apparently, this was an aftershock—a big one, one and a half years later.
7.3 seems official. The epicenter seems about the exact same place as 3/11/11 quake. Am uploading video of what it was like here, 480 km (300 mi.). Here’s what Tenki.jp shows about the quake:
Here’s the video:
That’s set as “Unlisted,” and “privacy” is enhanced—let me know if you can’t see it.
They’re still saying there could be a 1-meter tsunami in Sendai.
