Dear sisters ......... We just experienced a strong earthquake in Tokyo. I think the epicenter was under the Pacific Ocean south of the Japan main island (Honshu). The magnitude was 6.9 - detrimental. The entire country of Japan felt the shock but I think Kanto region (including Tokyo) recorded the strong 4.0 magnitude.
Our 'earthquake resistant' highrise building was swaying and I could feel the floor thumping under my feet! Whenever there is a tremor, I usually look at the light in my dining area as that is my best indicator of how serious an earthquake is. This time, the crystal ball was swinging widely back and forth like a pendulum! Trust me at that moment, my legs and arms felt so weak and I bet my face must have turned pale too! My instinct was to kneel down and pray to God and let this one pass us without any harm. I heard the early report is no serious injury or damage. I hope all our Japanese sisters and their families are safe. Peace!
