another earthquake

There was a ginormous earthquake while I was at work today...

...I'm not gonna lie, I nearly cried ^^;;;. For about 10 seconds things were falling off the shelves and such, so I just plopped down on the ground and sniffled pitifully. It was a sad scene. I had the joy of picking up the office afterward, too.

I've dealt with a lot of bad weather, but earthquakes are so scary sometimes ;-;. JAPAN, DON'T SINK, OKAY?

>.< was that around 3:00? i know they said there was a "small" earthquake at the head office in Tokyo today (i was in a v-chat with head office people at that time, that's how i know ^.^;;). but yeah, earthquakes are scary >>;;

I guess it could have been... but it would have been more than just a "small" earthquake, for it to reach Yokohama that strongly >.>;. Maybe there were a couple earthquakes going on or something. It was pretty scary, though >.>.

maybe the epicenter was closer to yokohama than the main office... but i think their definition of "small" is slightly different than ours lol! and yeah, i can imagine it was scary! i've only had a small one here (small by my standards..... meaning most of my students, the manager and the JET didn't even notice it ^.^;;;;), and that was scary enough when i was by myself in my apartment >>

I'm used to Missouri weather, which sports hellish flooding/tornadoes/hail storms/etc... I yawn at all those things, but earthquakes are so foreign to me, that I always freak out XD;.

I'm still a bit freaked out by the little one we were in so I can't imagine being in one where stuff falls. DDD:

Well, no heavy stuff was thunking off the shelves, but a few books fell, and papers went everywhere in several rooms -.o;;;. It was a bit stronger than that one we were in, so yeah, I was not in good shape XD;. *on the floor*

Were there any earthquakes in Korea? Japan gets them way too often ^^;;;.

No earthquakes in Korea that I knew of. In fact, it was perfect weather/conditions the entire time I was there, althought it was too hot by the end of the trip.

I wouldn't be able to handle things falling off... *would be crying herself* M-SAMA WHY MUST EARTHQUAKES TORTURE US!?

No heavy things were falling off, but a few books fell, and papers were everywhere in several rooms -.-. Mouuuu, I just remember thinking "omg, don't get stronger!" I don't understand earthquakes, so I was afraid it was going to get worse and worse ^^;. It was okay, though... just about 10 seconds of constant swaying. SCARY SWAYING, of course XD;.

EARTHQUAKES, LEAVE US ALONE! Now I can share in your earthquake pain at least XD;.

It's incredibly scary... even like 3 seconds of swaying is scary. XD;; *hates on this*
Oct. 9th, 2008 06:24 pm (UTC)
Ohhhh! Well it's a good thing you are alright! O_O
I had a small earthquake here in San Fran but compared to what you are saying, that sounds freaking scary!!!! *runs around* Hopefully it won't happen agin soon. D:
