Experienced my first earthquake in Japan today. You could feel this one easily — The building shook several times over a span of about two minutes. No damage to anything.
Earthquake epicenter was about 100 miles north of Tokyo. Registered 5.3 on the Richter scale. The USGS has more technical data on it.
From the map, it looks like the epicenter was just off the coast of Honshu. I figure it was probably Godzilla waking up from his oceanic slumber…Posted by pmk at January 23, 2004 8:13 AM | TrackBack
