BIG Earthquake in Japan Just Now! Predicted in Advance by Two Minutes (Live)
Japanese news; direct experience ^ | 14 June 2008 | AmericanInTokyo

Posted on 06/13/2008 4:58:12 PM PDT by AmericanInTokyo

We just had a very strong earthquake which fiercely rocked and rolled the main Island of Honshu in Japan.

TV broke with news on all channels IN ADVANCE OF EARTHQUAKE, warning people to "get ready". 8:43 a.m. local time Saturday (just about 10 minutes ago). 7:43 p.m. Friday Eastern Time.

Then, sure enough, the long, rolling shaking began, and increased in intensity. I estimate the shaking to have gone on for at least 45 seconds. It hit here at 8:45 a.m. It literally gave us 2 minutes to prepare. I have never experienced an advance earthquake warning.

The epicenter is considerably far from Tokyo, way up in northwest Japan. So I am sure there is little or no damage in Tokyo, but I can imagine damage and/or loss of life near the epicenter. It may well have been a 7.5. We will see.

Incredible experience. Good job, Japanese earthquake predictive technology and national TV networks.

Knowing it is coming perhaps makes the feelings more intense, with the sentiment of anticipation setting in.

do you know where in NW Japan? My daughter lived for 2 years in Tajima in Fukushima Prefecture, and has several friends who are still there.

They have been testing this system in California... basically because the sensors can alert a network faster than the waves move through the earth.... I am glad to see it work in Japan......In CA it will probably never work, due to different entities involved.

Felt it here, about 30 mi SW of Tokyo. Didn’t pay it much mind - figured it was one of the usual 5.0 +/- just off the coast. Yikes.
