So, I was going about my business, eating my dinner, when my whole house started to sway. It was the second earthquake I had experienced. I felt a bit of motion sickness, but that was it. Nothing fell over, no grand explosions. I had to attend a meeting about a volunteer thing I am doing tomorrow, so I didn’t find out about the magnitude of the earthquake until sometime later.
Thankfully, the worst of it is apparently over and the subsequent Tsunami had a minimal effect. It was like everyone was waiting for something to happen, and no one had any control over it. Quite a frightening and humbling experience.
