No kidding, 7.9 is not a tremor. My woman has people over there, hoping they are safe.

Watch for aftershocks.

Thanks for letting us know you’re safe. STAY safe! Initial reports usually are lacking in info and accuracy. Hopefully, there’s minimal damage to people there. Apparently smoke coming form Capitol right now per Fox News

Prayers up for you and all of yuns (Pittsburgh word for the plural form of you) over there. I’m watching NHK and it looks like cars and boats were tossed around like Matchbox cars. Take care over there. Got work tomorrow so it is time for bed.

Start cleaning up.

We went through a 7.9 here in Alaska Nov 3rd 2002; nothing to laugh at. Well head in my laundry room blew off and I had a geyser hitting the ceiling for an hr or so. Broke, all utility lines, 2-3 feet of junk & possessions all over the floors, chests of drawers & china closets flipped over.

We had aftershocks every hr or so for first week, like 6.0 aftershocks. Continued to have after shocks for about a month after first quake. Got old actually. Hope she all works out for ya.

Just had a major aftershock. OK now.

Chatted with Leftie-lie-spy, he’s OK. There’s a lot of broken glass around the building. I have the gas and water
turned off just in case.

Dear Sweet Jesus make it stop!!!

Heavy aftershocks in progress. NHK TV studios—bullet trains stopped. Tokyo Metro system.

Tsunami now hitting a port in No. Japan—now—large wave engulfing a port Kimosai City?—in the north—covering boats and cars near the water—live on NHK TV.

Fires in downtown Tokyo. Airport closed. All flights cancelled.
